I wonder if a gearbox will bolt on it?
Not really - the case casting doesn't have the bosses in the areas needed to be drilled for the mounting bolts.
Would take a bunch of welding/machining/drilling to modify case for gearbox mounting.

If this turns out to be a viable alternative some enterprising person could find a way. But I agree with you that there isn't much to start with on the rear of the engine ...
