Should Be A Light Press Fit

Should Be A Light Press Fit

Here the machinist is test fitting the coupling to the shaft. A soft lead mallet is used to tap it on. This is NOT pounding but a light "tap fit"... Just enough interference so it won't go on by hand is how it is done.. With a good fit you may need to heat the coupling to make the shaft slide into it when doing the install at the boat..
