    engine alignment question

    i know the actual alignment is all over, but it seems as if my mounts sit 1/4" to far to the back..im pretty much touching on my pto coupler things and i still cant get a bolt in the mounts, i will be able to push the rubber mount forward and get a bolt in but from what ive read i need a small air gap in the coupler area...i was just wondering if theres somthing i can move or adjust to give me a little more room to work with

    do you have all the bolts loose on the mounts? the ones holding it down in the hull and the motor mount bolts?

    no just the ones that hold the motor down..guess ill pull the other ones out and see how much that helps.

    loosen them all this gives you maximum movement, don't remove them.
