    Motor alignment shims

    I just pulled the motor from one of my 1996 slt780's, the PTO piston went so I figured it's time for a rebuild.
    I noticed there are no shims on the mounts. Is it possible that none were needed?
    Has anyone ever seen one without any shims?
    I saw somewhere that the number of shims is sometimes marked on the mounts, but I couldn't find anything on mine if they are marked where would the marks be?
    I don't have an alignment tool to check, hopefully beerdart will have enough to sell me one.

    My 99 SLTH had no shims in it. However my SL 900 must have 20 of them.

    It may be written on the hull next to the mount. My 94sl had numbers written in marker with different numbers.. looked factory.

    3 up front and 4 in back each side for mine. some may not need any. just depends.. I have some extras if you need a few. the plastic and metal ones.

    My SLH didn't take any....which was really surprising considering two of the mounts were added after the fact in order to mount the 1200.

    Other's I have have take 4-5 in one corner.
