SkyJeep Flywheel Replacement Viking Honda

Found two cracks in my aluminum flywheel.

The new parts require the reduction gearbox to move forward 1/4 inch. This causes the radiator to move forward, and interfere with the cowl.

I decided to try modifying the drive coupling by machining 1/8 inch off each side, thereby recovering the 1/4 inch.

I plan to do a few high power ground runs before flying, and will update this post with the results.

Hi Steve, What did the drive coupling come of of? Or is it a Viking part.
