Flex Disk, a.k.a.: Giubo, guibo, driveshaft donut, gaebo etc…
NOTE: Failure to replace a worn or aged flex joint can result in sudden and catastrophic disintegration of the joint. This causes the driveshaft to fall loose, impacting the road surface with absolutely unpredictable results!
“Giubo” is a contraction of the Italian word giunto (‘joint’ or ‘coupling’) and the surname of the Italian engineer who designed and patented the first flex disc, Antonio Boschi (b1896-d1988). He later founded GIUBO SpA, a company solely dedicated to manufacturing flex discs.
