SBT Engine Alignment Tool In Action
Since Chad (IBADTON) had his SKAT seal explode and take out his SC we looked for more reasons a few weeks ago and took a look at his old carbon ring that you can see here.
It looked obvious that his motor had alignment issues so we split the cost of the alignment tool and here is what we found.
We believe we need to shim the left side of the motor facing it from the back and they did not give us any shims.
Chad is going to order us a few.
This past weekend while working on my own boat I noticed my ski is off center to as well and has been so from the factory!!!

No surprises here... I've never had one with perfect factory alignment. For shits and grins... check the pump shoe-thru hull alignment!

I figured they may be at the time of "Creation", but the mounts sag over this time. I think that the rubber is not uniform quality.

The trouble with this is the sagging under load of the engine/drive-train.
Under no load, the perfect alignment is good, but what does it do when loaded up.
Suppose there has to ba start point though.
Chicken or the egg!!
Like BD says, get one and make some using it as a template.
