Their online catalog, part 5 shows flywheels with a bore for the U-joint, just like yours.  That's one approach.  Lionel and MTH will also sell you a flywheel, or you could have one made at a local machine shop.  The trick is having the right size bore to accommodate the U-joint.  (Or you would have to change the U-joint on the gearbox end.)

If you're not absolutely wedded to DCS, an ERR Cruise Commander upgrade would allow you to run the loco under Legacy with excellent performance and 100 speed steps.  No tach reader required!

Creep, coast, and pull.  We're not talking about cold fusion here.

JUDD, let me add a bit to Teds response If you have a DCS system you can connect a TMCC command base for not very much about $50 for cable and used TMCC base or a Legacy system to your MTH DCS TIU and control the ERR cruise commander with your DCS controller.  The ERR Cruise Commander operates in TMCC but both the TMCC base and the Legacy base in TMCC mode will allow control of your TMCC and Legacy locos with your DCS controller however you will not be able to access the Legacy specific features such as quillable whistle with your DCS controller.          j
