Re: Rag Joint Issue
The metal pieces should NOT overlap. The ends should butt against each other. During the installation it can be a task to get those plates where they need to go but I assure you, they shouldn't overlap. The rubber parts are often drilled a little off but the rubber can be moved/strtched to get everything together properly.
You say the holes don't line up yet all the bolts are in. I don't follow you. Which sprocket/rag joint are you installing the large or small one?
