Vire 7/12 Prop-shaft RUBBER COUPLING KIT (Early Version)
Does not include flanges, just the singular rubber and its bushes, to fit 6 x M8 flange pair
This is the Early version with 6 holes the same diameter.
(Late gearbox flange has 3 x M10 threads/bushes, so this part will not fit M10 stud properly)

Warning: Last items in stock!
Measure the diameter of the gearbox flange studs?
If they are 8mm (M8) then this needs THIS early coupling.
If they are 10mm (M10) then this will not fit properly.
Vire 6 all had circular flange with 3 x M8 studs (Early coupling -this one)
Vire 7/12 with 3 x M8 studs (Early coupling - this one)
Vire 7/12 with 3 x M10 studs (Late coupling - Not this one) and a ~PLATE with 3 x 17mm M10 nuts to secure at the aft end.
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)
remove old bushes from outside your studs(tap or heat off if stiff)
Slide on coupling, this needs to be stretched out a bit 1mm, no problem for the rubber.
Tighten nuts (should replace if 'nylock' ones)
