Sole Diesel - 110S drive

In 2004 I replaced my old MD 11 C Volvo penta with a Sole Diesel 25 HP (a Mitsubishi, marinised by Sole Diesel ).

The new engine works with my old 110S drive as Sole Diesel produces and supplies a special adaptor.
I have a problem now , but I believe it is not related with the Sole - Volvo marriage: the couppler on the engine's side has broken, so there is no transmission.

I think that the damage happened because of the old rubber joint (between the engine's and S drive's coupplers) ageing and destruction.

So I am looking into a good pair of coupplers too.
