The main problem, for me, is that by de clutching one engine, I lose sync, but since I'm sync'ing them after the transmissions, I will probably change the sync'ing every time I step on the clutches. Looks like I need to join the two engines before the clutches. SO, your suggestion of the Lovejoy Coupler, joining the actual crankshafts, may be the best way to keep the two engines constantly sync'ed, though I don't know how to gain access to the ends of the two crankshafts, one on the right side of the crankcase, and the other on the left side of it's crankcase. Maybe I can put a shaft between the two Primary Chains:
