Thanks Mike, looks like I'm going alot faster than planned. Got the motor in! Real quick as I was cleaning up I checked the alignment of the motor and the tool slid right in with a push of a finger. I'm 97% sure its perfectly lined up. I'm pretty psyched about that because my old boat took a lifetime to get the motor lined up. Here's some pics. If I could only afford some nice stainless marine manifolds. I'm coming down to the wire on the budget haha

Coming together nicely.

If your alignment tool goes in with one finger, you're done and don't touch a damn thing
That can be a good test for the condition of the stringers in an older boat. If the motor won't align, look there. I had a neighbor just replace a coupler on his I/O. I warned him about the motor dropping out of alignment when he pulled the drive. He assured me it was fine.
Saw him a week later and said he fought it for 3 days before getting it back together.

I've always wondered that. I'm not sure why they are wide but I've always loved the factory stainless pipes.

Looking great!!! Great work!!!! But I also want to know why the exhaust is that wide? Was there a swim platform on the boat or something?

I think it's just something seebold did, the optional swim platform had the exhaust point in towards the outdrive so maye it had something to do with it. The swim platform is actually above the tips so you can barely ever see em.
