If you meen the shock absorber between the shaft and engine couplings, 1 is Drivesaver. I got mine from Hamilton Marine in Portland Maine. You will need to know the hole spacing for your couplings.

the small raised section in the middle of the propellor flange that mates to the corresponding cutout on the engine/transmission

Sometimes those raised pilot faces are not available for some engine couplings. My Westerbeke W46 has a 4-finger coupling, not a full circle. I had to carefully reduce the diameter of the raised section with a knife and file. Also check whether or not you can use your existing bolts. My drivesaver has very fine threads.
