Replacing the starter motor has morphed into a project beyond anything I anticipated. I'm now installing a Borgeson as the motor is out and it seemed like a good idea. Having removed the original coupler I have been able to compare the column with the Borgeson coupler - the black dot on the coupler denoting the right depth it should go to (1" 1/2). My query is, for any others that have done this where have you cut the column given the location of the pin? I'm toying with cutting in the middle of the pin location, so I can knock it out and have enough length for pinning into the Borgeson?
