Got the coupling modified , keyway cut , new spline piece from a later model C welded into it and running into a misalignment issue . Seems like the engine is 1/2" too far forward ??
I need this thing tight to the front pump mount so it's got as much of the splines engaged as possible and utilizes the 3/16" wide key to take the abuse I had machined into the pump shaft (that hurt, btw) . I set the coupling within .030" of the bracket , which is where it sat before although previously someone stacked a whole lot of washers between the coupling and the engine's flywheel . Is the rubber puck perhaps backwards , somehow ??
You can see just how far it's pulling on the rubber section , bowing out the two sides attached to the engine's flywheel .
Looking closely , the black allen socket set screw holds the key in place tightly - and I mean TIGHT . I want zero movement against those splines - in my opinion that is why these things wear out too easily .
I seem to remember there are two raised portions on the rubber ring - on each side of it and there is a difference , perhaps it's the wrong direction ?
Any insights - bring 'em on - it's an odd 92* day here in September and I'm sure we'll pay for it next week ...ugh .

Theres a few more items not listed
Craigslist find that just happened to fall together today. The first tractor is pretty straight but appears to have not run in the last decade... The second is pounded, prior owner replaced the kohler with an 8 horse briggs, and the seat pan with a metal one that did not have a filler hole in the right place (268H), so he sawed the neck off the gas tank and duck taped on it's replacement". Over all it's a mess, but that loader is pretty darn nice and it seems to work well, but tractor doesn't run well enough to give it a good work out yet. The only leak is it seems to be some weeping at the drain hole on the tank. I'll need to build a weight box for it, but over all pretty excited as I've looked a long time for a loader.
