shaft couplings

A general rule is that rust is ten times thicker than the metal that produced it. In other words, .001 inches of metal rusting will produce a layer of rust .010 inches.

Wire brush, paint with Rustolium, align your engine, and bolt it up.

If you are really concerned about it, pull the shaft and take it and the coupling to a machine shop and have it refaced.
