Mount bolts are all still very tight. No appreciable vibration coming from engine or shaft when in gear at different RPMs. Still seems to be aligned.

I did notice a little gear box oil getting past the seal on the dip stick and dripping down the side when at high RPMs. This is why I think there may be too much oil in the gear box.
