and get a piece of 1/8in OD brass tubing which conveniently has an ID that is the same as the impeller shaft for the NQD. Drill a hole in it for the set screw, stuff in your coupler, and you're good to go!
Remember I told you guys i bought this before we realize it's too big. Anyway.. It arrive from china today. This thing is the side of my thumb..
Even if i get the adapter to work correct.. Is this coupler too big for the motor setup and the shaft?

yup..3x3 is the wrong size for the nqd, but the tubing will work, but if the dia. of the coupling is too big to fit in the jet, turning it down on anything but a good lathe will give you a imbalance that will shred the jet very quick.

From your pic it looks too big in OD (outside diameter) to fit in the NQD housing. If it will fit in the housing, the bore in the coupler can be reduced in the way Fire told you. Chi and I have been working with someone in England on a shock-absorbing coupler sized for the NQD. Am expecting a prototype to test very soon. Will report to the thread asap. Meanwhile, if your chinese coupler won't fit, play with your Blackjack, or get a solid coupler from Steve at SicRC.

Apologies for sorta giving you a bum-steer on that one. Maybe you could use it for a different boat or something in the future?

Do you think a little surgery ala "Lathe-grinder" might "hone it down to a more sveldt diameter?

Yup. This site doesn't allow me to express the extent of my disappointment. , and doesn't begin to describe it.

Yup. Might get away with that on a slow scale boat, but at the revs we turn these things at. Well, some of us anyway. Mr (74000 revs) Chidago

Beautiful as usual, but every year that hard water thing seems to last longer. Global warming seems to have missed us in the northwoods.

Hey Chi, wifey and I will be checking the Minocqua area this afternoon and evening, ( can you spell steak and martini's).
Ice Drags here on the river today. Some of them have some pretty sophisticated equipment that makes my Hemi Magnum look tame.

See ya when my NQD hits the front porch.

Chi, you should know that stuff it's an Illinois chain with only one franchise out of state, just happens to be my state. yummmmm

Mad, that really sucks about the boat. Likely one of those rigs you would only ever find by accident. I'll have a gander when I got a chance.

Nice pics again Chi. You see the thing about areas where you get all sorts of different weather conditions, you need new toys for each of them. At least that's the excuse I would use

Anyways, I wanted headers for the boat so went and had a look for the losi ones and forgot how pricey they are! I know it's not really that much but still nearly half the price(once shipping added) of the original boat. So before I bought some I told myself I would try make some.

I have some brass tube kicking about so got the bender out and gave it a shot. Here's my first attempt. I still have to trim them, merge them into one larger output and I'll paint them but I think they turned out good for 5 quid worth of parts(for both) and a bit of time which I enjoy doing.
