    Engine alingment without tool

    Ok Im finaly putting my ski back togeather and I'm wondering if I need to use the alingment tool again, I just got everything shimmed up and straight at the end of last season and ended up pulling the motor again this winter, I did keep track of the Shims for each motor mount! Do you think I would be able to put it in with the same amount of shims and be fine or do you think I need the tool?
    Or is there any way to do it without the tool?

    I pulled mine and never even removed the shims from the mounts. Alignment was still off. The shims only provide adjustment on 2 of the 3 axes as well. Due to the slots in the base plate(s) the motor can move left to right as well..... I would use the tool......

    Should work just fine as long as the 20mm rod you bought is straight and true.
