Sorry I can't help with pics. but I've got to wonder how much vibration that shaft was causing.

So much that you can't operate it

Scott doesn't have the driveshaft cover for his, so he should be able to get you the pics you need easily. Man, did someone do a hack job on that shaft! Tell me they didn't weld to the input shaft on the transaxle....

Oh but that is a GREAT thing. That means the welds likely didn't penetrate the shaft much, or any at all. Damage to the shaft from the weld will be minimal & likely can clean up with a file or a Dremel stone.

That's a mess. Like Daniel said it's good that the welds were not sound. I hope it didn't ruin the bearings.

Here are pictures of the d4-10. Neither t-63 Has the transaxle in them. The parts are the same for the D4-10, D4-7 and the T-63.
The second picture is of the rod and the couplings.......I had to quit looking because it started raining.... Will go back later today to see how many extras sets I have.

First picture shows how it looks hooked up to the transaxle shaft.

Second pictures shows the shaft and couplings that are needed to hook the motor to the transaxle.
On the D4-10 and the T-63 the coupling with the cut outs all the way to the bolt hole was connected to the transaxle.....the front coupling just had 4 holes total (2 sets of 2- but were not cut out to the end of the coupling).....hope this is not too confusing.
