A coupler joins engine with trans, so no, trans is fine if it is the coupler.
My coupler has no rubber, just splined center, springs arranged in a circle, flat plate that bolts to engine. Looks like a clutch disc without the friction material.
What mine looks like from when I rebuilt the engine
I cleaned it, primed it then re oiled with gear oil. In perfect shape from 1970.
