I read JC's shop manual and it said to just jam some duct tape in the coupler and it should be just fine again.

Motor mount collapsed, caused engine/drive misalignment and spun coupler-towed in at 125.00 per hr by Sea Tow @ 5mph for 6 hours...ouch...Wife still reminds me on the expense not including yanking motor.

Good luck hope it works out 4u
How much did you end up spending on the repair itself?
