Be wary of suction and weight gimmicks promising extra inches.

Those flexible adapters may work, but nothing beats a firm shaft. Are you satisfied with the girth, or is length your only issue?

Thanks for picking up the slack here Steve.... Way too good an opportunity to let pass up!

Re: shaft is too short

Do the shaft coupling holes line up precisely with the Perkins coupling ? If arranged on a different diameter dimension, you may not find a factory DriveSaver ( I couldn't ) and will have to have the shaft coupling redrilled to match.
