Re: Shaft Alignment: Alignment causes mount problems

On Guenevere we changed the shaft and prop. I no longer had room for a collar zinc or Perry nut. So I installed a shaft brush on the inside of the boat grounded to a zinc on the outside. It's been working GREAT and it's easy to change when needed.

You can see on at;

Re: Shaft Alignment: Alignment causes mount problems

How about bolting mounts to a 3/8 plate with longer bolt pattern(elongated holes on forward ends) on the base. Counter bore/weld heads of bolts to plate and re drill beds when aligned.Fill the old holes with epoxy.I usually make a sort of C clamp with a nut welded on so sideways adjustment can be obtained by turning a bolt.Handy on the heavier engines.

Re: Shaft Alignment: Alignment causes mount problems

we rebuilt the blocks the engine mounts are secured into. as a result of the proper realignment of the engine, my propshaft became neutral and perfectly aligned and no more shaft gland leakage..rodlmao.

so i am no longer trying to make a round hole ovalized.
now for mobility factor......rebuilding engine will be completed at anchor if not before then. we anchor me out mid december.
