The solution for a while has been to make custom motor plates under the hood from which that the motor can hang. Then, building a drive adapter to match a motor's output shaft with a driveshaft yoke usually involves spinning off custom-machined parts, which is both expensive and raises the barrier of entry.

Every automotive Q is answered by the 'application" Q.  What is the final use, purpose, 80% of intended final application?

At completion (phase I) the wrk continues (phase II) but should not change throughout the build. If it duz it proved the research was poor, the builder fickle or if extended build - a change in technology (new break-thus).  Seen too many 'hack jobs' when not following the foregoing~
