    Hi Clive, it looks very weak in bending have you done any FEA work, to look at other load cases? I assume you are not using the roof as a structural member?

    Thanks for all your suggestions. I ended up with a bit of a compromise, as I had them made from an open die forging, using some existing tooling, and then machined to the final shape. I just need to machine them to suit my driveshaft tube and drill the holes for the doughnut bolts now.

    Hi Andy, Ideally I am looking for something with reasonably tight tolerances, but plan B might be a bit more rough and ready, and do some more final machining.

    Original Rubber Drive Couplings (Donuts)

    Happy New Year too, I will be interested to see how they go? It's not something I would have ever thought about making, but its amazing what you can do when you have to! Are the steel inserts forged, or did you cast them?
