Just a thought; caustic solution is very old school. There is some engine cleaning nowadays that uses solvent.
If cam bearings are not worn, then they might be saved that way.

Cheers,

So, it looks like you have a fairly un-decomposed engine. That is; it seems to be not too rusty. Good work on that.

It looks like the split coupling is a 3/4-inch and the blue one is 1-inch. I think you must have a reduction gear in your vee-drive, so that would be a larger diameter prop, thus a 1-inch shaft.
