That was all covered somewhere within this forum.  
The first connection broke which required the design and implementation of the second connection on there now.

Here's the coupler. The back engine has a Lima steel crank with the big snout and a double keyed crank hub.

I'm guessing the rear engine has the starter that fires both up?
That's got to be a beast of a starter if I'm guessing right.

It does now. I did have two flexplates and two mini starters, but took the front starter and flexplate off this weekend. It actually starts good off one. Hopefully losing a little rotating mass and weight will give me a little more. It went 5.89@117 the weekend after this was filmed.
