DAX suggests:

Whatever kind of coupler you come up with, I would consider getting it case hardened
Thanks - that's a new term to me. (case hardened)

In order of most to least common, I'd say people use taper locks (on the external keyed motor shaft) connected to a flange that the clutch plate is then bolted to (or they retain the flywheel and normal clutch action).

After that, people use "Lovejoy" connectors.

After that, they make up whatever seems to works. (That'll be us.)
