Tips for dropping in an A-4?

Hi everyone,

Been lurking for awhile. This is my first post.

I bought a rebuilt Atomic 4 this weekend to replace the Atomic 4 that a PO filled with saltwater and abandoned inside the engine compartment. So, I have the old A-4 disconnected and ready to pull, and I plan to do so this evening.

I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or advice on hooking up the new engine. Things to look out for or be careful of? Any good tricks for lining the engine with the prop shaft? The mechanic I bought the engine from said it could take 10 minutes or all day, and I'd like to be on the 10 minute side of that.
