"Flexured" shaft couplings #6313 and #6607 help overcome vibrational forces and twisting caused by the high torque of Indy car engines, in addition to the normal distortions that can occur in the manufacture of the engine manifolds. The couplings are single-piece units machined from a single piece of material. End attachments such as tangs, clamps, flanges, or threaded ends can be integrated into a single, multifunctional component.
