I had a guy custom make a coupler/adapter for my MG conversion. Installed it and got a loud vibration and was able to observe a wobble in the coupler. I sent it back and he corrected the wobble. Once installed I got less of a vibration/more of a loud buzz.
I was an idiot and assumed since the coupler no longer wobbled that the buzz must be coming from my trans. I drove it for three months like that and finally decided to pull the motor/trans to see if I could figure out the buzz. Upon separating the trans and motor the coupler fell off along with pieces of the motor shaft. The clutch plate bolted to the coupler also had cracks.
a) Anyone know a good source for Warp motor repair parts? I assume the drive end bearing is also toast, although the motor runs pretty smoothly with no load.
b) Has anyone else had a similar failure? If so, did you determine a cause?
c) Any educated guesses as to a cause for the failure (other than me being an idiot)?
All opinions welcome.
