    You will remove the #3 midshaft bearing assembly. #6 Housing mount will stay on the hull. If you need to shim, you do so between #6 & the hull.

    Oo - so the tool mounts on top of '6' instead of '3'?

    Re: Engine alignment question.

    Finally got to it again. Purchased the 'Cold Fusion Driveshaft Alignment Tool - Yamaha' from Blowsion. And another failure - the tool does not fit! The inside diameter of the alignment sleeve is about 18mm and my shaft diameter is about 20mm. I wish there would be a note about it somewhere or somebody told me about it Now- they probably don't even make this tool for my ski since I haven't seen any variations when I was searching for it? What are my options?

    Re: Engine alignment question.

    Have you tried adjusting the motor mounts? You could probably do it with motor in. Loosen both bolts on each mount and move engine. That's what I would try next.

    Re: Engine alignment question.

    Yes I did - it doesn't move much. If you look at pictures - I need to move it quite a bit. And since I paid for a tool - I was hoping to put it to work

    Re: Engine alignment question.

    So, since the Cold Fusion Alignment tool is not available for my ski - would it be safe enough to re-shim intermediate housing to match the engine position?

    Re: Engine alignment question.

    Ok, just an update. Got it fixed to the point where I think it should be fine. Here is what I did:

    When I removed the 'Bearing Housing Assembly' to attach the cold-fusion tool just to find that it don't fit, I just attached a piece of wood to the shaft as straight as I could and seen that the shaft is not centered to the engine, so the tool would not do much good there. So, from my understanding, I had to move the engine over or the shaft with intermediate housing over. I decided to move the engine since I didn't wanna mess with the pump and housing. The shims didn't work, because with each added shim to move the engine sideways it moved the engine up also and it reached the top position sooner then it was aligned. So what I did is took the engine bracket off the engine, grind the bolt holes a bit the needed way and secure it back to the engine. It got better, but still wasn't there. So then I removed each engine mount and did the same thing, grind the bolt holes the needed way a bit and put them back. Now I was able to align the engine with the few shims. I don't know why I had to go through all of this, maybe the engine I got from SBT years ago wasn't the same as the original. Anyway this step is done and I can slowly proceed with the assembly now
