btw I was reading earlier posts and it's spelled "Giubo" and pronounced jewbo.

The word "giunti" means "joint" in Italian. The rubber flex disc was invented by an Italian engineer named I. Boschi in the late 1940's, who
then formed a company named "Giubo SpA" who manufactered the first flex discs for the Alfa Romeo 1900. This part
became commonly known as the "Giuinti Boschi" then was shortened to "Giu-Bo" (pronounced "JEU-Bo"). Fiat SpA
also used this part in some of their cars, then ultimately BMW came up with their own version


Fun fact for the day.
