Re: shaft alignment

I took a heavy piece of steel, set in the hull, and mounted a magnetic base dial indicator to it. I found that the ears on the transmission did not have a true for & aft run out. I had to build spacers to compensate for that. I don't remember but I think the variance between ears was about .007. Everything is nice and smooth now.
