Great progress! Doing the engine and drive aligment is a pain in the azz, at least for me... i remember spending hours and hours trying to align the engine so the drive shaft would slip in smooth...


how are you going to do it? Not many ways to do it you are going to tell me... but you might have some trick to share! I will have to do it again on my chriscat when i get there!

nice progress! Love following your tread!

The trick is getting the motor hung flat and level. Then make sure the boat is the same flat and level. both of these motors are drive line. In 93 they didn't have a plug in number 6 yet.

Did you spray gelcote in the bilge or is that paint? Deciding which way to best finish my project.

Thanks,
Todd
