You experienced sorts out there, please hang on a while before giving this an answer - let the Studes or Robbo only people have a shot.

What is a Thomas Coupling and what's it's purpose? Wink

I guess I fall into both of those categories... but I have no idea! Anybody else heard of it? Perhaps it's time for that 5 hour walk around the engineer promised me...

If it is anything like the coupling rods you get on a train then is it a rod that connects the tail rotor drive shaft to the engine to get it moving?

Clutching at straws?

Go look it up - you'll need to know exactly what THEY are when you get past the Robbo stage of flying (hint)

Well I know what a Thomas Splint is because many years ago I had to wear one in cadet practice first aid. But I have often wondered what the Coupling bit is?

A Thomas coupling is a real easy way of connecting driveshafts with an inbuilt flex in the coupling. Its often used in driveshafts of the kind that you din want to be completely rigid......

I will dig in among my tech books to fint a way to describe it better.
