Default Reusing adapter plate and clutch adapter?

So, I am planning to use an adapter plate and clutch adapter from a Warp 9 DC conversion with an AC-75 AC motor.

I have not removed the transmission adapter and clutch adapter from the DC motor yet, but I suspect that the shaft adapter will be a taper lock hub. Is there anything that I should know about disassembling this type of adapter and does anyone think that it will be fine to reuse these pieces?

They were removed from a previous conversion (the vehicles frame was rotten), but the vehicles drivetrain seemed fine before it was removed.

Thank you for any advice.

W56 Transmission adapter for 22re engine.

I have reason to believe that the adapter plate and clutch coupler come from http://www.electroauto.com/

It was in a 1986 Toyota pickup, it's going into an 89 toyota pickup and I am reusing the transmission from the 86.

Are there dowels in the plate or trans. to locate the plate? A close up of the coupling would be helpful. To see all of it, you'll have to remove the flywheel and clutch. Mark them so they can be put back in the same position. This company(I hear they're out of business) AIR supplied taper bushing couplings. The close up would show if this is the case.

To work properly, the input shaft of this trans. needs to be supported by the coupling. Look on other adapter plate /coupling threads to see why this is necessary.

Can you please elaborate on what you meant by "AIR supplied Taper bushing couplings"?
