    seadoo alignment issue with 95 xp

    Trying to align a 720 engine out of a 96 HX into my 95 XP 720 hull using the sbt alignment tool. The engine needs to move to the side more than the holes in the bedplate allow. Is this normal? I walled the holes out a bit and still, needs more work. I'm talking 1/8 to 1/4 or more moving to the right side when looking at the ski from the back. I can't remove the bedplate from the cases as it was a salt water ski and I'm pretty sure the bolts will sheer right off, so that only allows me to wallow out the bedplate to mount holes and it just seems like I shouldn't need to do this to make things fit... right?

    Correct-- any ski that I have replaced the motor on has never needed this but some have been close. Are you sure you can't get it with other adjustments? Sometimes it looks like I don't have enough side to side on the PTO side of the engine but once I look further it turns out to be a height or front of the engine issue that looks like you can't get it aligned.

    And the factory would sometimes put shims under the ears of the pump.
