Vire 7/12 Prop-shaft RUBBER COUPLING KIT (Late Version)
Does not include flanges and its bushes, just the singular rubber
Late version has the 3 studs facing aft from gearbox flange, bigger (M10) and longer, so the 6 holes in this coupling disc are 2 different sizes.
Please see full description for specific requirements and fitting:

We supply 3 different OEM gearbox flanges using 2 different studs, either M8 or M10:
Vire 6 all had circular flange with 3 x M8 studs (Early coupling NOT this one)
Vire 7/12 with 3 x M8 studs (Early coupling NOT this one)
Vire 7/12 with 3 x M10 studs (Late coupling this one)
picture shows late version gearbox flange studs M10, poking through the reversing-stretch-limiting (thats why they changed it all ) dish plate, they also fitted with 17mm nylock nuts facing aft on those.
So its pretty obvious without measuring: IF YOU HAVE PLATE - IT'S LATE.
Otherwise will be early - Please see other items.
2 x 13mm and 17mm spanners to remove coupling nuts (1 to lock shaft with loosened nut while other un-tightens!)
Slide off old coupling and bushes (tap off if rusted and grease)
Check 6 bushes are in the rubber holes snugly (I use a vice or pliers)
Slide on coupling
Tighten nuts (should replace if 'nylock' ones)
