Bolting coupler together3695 viewsWe hadn't realized just how difficult it was going to be to tighten the bolts holding the coupler together. It was really awkward and hard. Took 2 people. (one turning the motor, the other holding the allen wrench.)
This was compouned when we discovered another alignment problem. Turns out that the end bells of the Impulse 9 motors aren't that accurately machine. We had a 10-20 thousandths variance between them that we had to shim.

Coupler almost off3239 viewsThis is the coupler when it's just about cut off.
We would cut down to the keyway in the coupler, then we could pry it open just enough to tap it off the shaft.
