I have an issue that caused me to pull and rebuild my engine which has been completed. When the yard was reinstalling the engine we noticed that the engine was not in alignment on the seat with the shaft tube, but rather at an angle to being in alignment with shaft tube - the shaft tube was built at an angle we think to accomadate being able to get the shaft out without removing the engine by sliding it out the back and thereby missing the skeg.

I'm thinking im going to realign the shaft tube to make it straight and thereby the shaft will be straight. I am wondering if anyone has seen this, is this a factory install this way or has anyone redone this?
