Does the prop shaft need to touch the back of the transmission?
I'm installing a new engine, prop shaft and coupling. I've never done this before, and I don't know if the prop shaft is supposed to be pushed far enough through the coupling to touch the back of the transmission? This makes sense to me as the forward pushing shaft would push up against the engine and transfer that load, but I don't know. The coupling has two 1/4" set screws that I need to drill dimples for as well, just want to be sure I have the prop shaft setup right before I start drilling.
