I signed up for the special, no hanging upside down in the engine compartment, no having to dispose of used fluids, just scratch a check.

I hang my head in shame
i see motorS & driveS so its pretty safe to assume its $350 for both which would still leave HMMM $240.00 for 2.5 hours labor and glenncal some Xtra spare time

since they are including pulling the drives and alignment that is a great deal, I would pay it vs spending a day or two doing it all myself. Assuming they do good work.

My guess is they just slide the alignment tool in to make sure it is still alligned. That is how I do it and yes with those mounts mine has always been fine.

Good deal for the price. Even if you have to change lubes to syn before new season, it's still a good deal.

Dude, with your reputation I would be honored if you even touched my boat for $500.
