    All,

    I have a JEX-9991 Asplund 12 inch whisper chipper.
    While trying to remove the drum flywheel to service the bearing,
    I destroyed the flange-coupler.
    Now, I need a new coupler, and am having trouble finding a source for one.

    Altec does not want to service this chipper because it is too old.
    Will Altec's part department have this part or sell it to me?
    Are there other sources for this coupler?

    Thank you,

    Any power transmission or bearing dealer can match it to a new one. I had a Vermeer 12" drum chipper that Vermeer wanted $500. just for busing. Went to Motion Industries for $120 and had it next day. I never go to the dealers. Good Luck
