Thanks I will try that tomorrow.  I was afraid if I hit it too hard, it'll break the transmission or something else.

I also bought a new coupler with the metal ring in the center.  It went on very hard and I didn't have it flush.  I wondered why the motor clips went back on so hard the first time.  The black rubber peice moves freely now, and it didn't move at all the first time.  I just took it off and put it on again, we'll see how it goes.  I guess not having them on far enough is just as bad.  Thank you for the information, thought I needed to replace my transmision or something else.

Actually I used to sell a special tool for coupling installation for 10 bucks. It looked just like that black center piece but it had a square hole in it to fit a 3/8ths drive socket extention into and it was made of rigid plasic. You would fit an end piece on it and install the endpiece without the possibility of going to far and it was much easier to install the end piece. Nobody wanted to pay the 10 bucks for the tool. Didn't sell too many. Never reordered em.

I use a nice piece of 5/8ths shaft I saved from replacing a shaft on a belt driven blower.
