"I used this coupling to replace the broken Lovejoy coupling on my log splitter. It has a 15 hp Briggs on it with 30 ton ram. I split two cords of swamp maple and it is fine. If you have never installed one, make sure it is aligned properly and make sure you leave a 1/16 gap."

"I used this to couple my 10hp Tecumseh log splitter engine to a 16 GPM Haldex pump. Installation was a snap!! The coupler fit perfectly; likewise enabling me to be up and running in no time. After numerous hours of use there are no signs of wear or any vibrations, equally attributed to a quality part!!!"

"I used this to join a 13.6 GPM Haldex two stage pump to a 7.5HP Briggs Vanguard engine. The pump has a 1/2 inch shaft and the engine has a 1 inch shaft. The keyway and allen screw came with the coupling so there was no need to run to the local parts store. Very easy to install and works perfectly. Just remember to leave about a 1/16 inch of clearance between the two halves and your pump will work excellent with no vibration."

These couplings do the trick

"These couplings were perfect for mating my motor to a hydraulic pump for a log splitter project. I just selected the proper shaft size for the motor and likewise for the pump. I combined them with the rubber insert and now I have a direct drive from motor to pump. Thanks Northern!"

"I had a typical problem, 1/2" shaft on the pump and a 3/4" shaft on the Honda
5 hp motor. The standard coupling would not do, so the customer service
lady suggested getting one half of each coupling. Worked perfectly, with the
little rubber inserts included. I used one half part number 3002 and the other
half part number 3005. Once again Northern's assistance was great.
