Need some quick alignment advice
I've got 3 shims under each motor mount. The OEM & SBT shims both come with 1.3mm thickness for each shim. Right now if I don't touch the bearing bellow the alignment shaft will come in just a hair too high (looks like slightly less than the thickness of one shim). The Sea-Doo shop manual says never to go above 5mm thickness in shims. If I add a 4th shim I'd be at 5.2mm total thickness.
Left to right I'm good, But I'm probably .08-1mm off vertically. But there's also a bit of play with bellow and the shaft tool hanging out of it. Do I add an extra shim and violate the 5mm rule? Or could this slight off vertical centering be attributed to possible play in the shaft tool and/or bellow? Is the amount I'm off, small enough to be considered negligible?

The bellow and pto bearing have nothing to due with alignment. Its all about pump and engine coupler.

Remove the bellow and bearing and align it to the crankshaft coupler.

Number of shims does not matter shim to get the tool into the coupler without restance.

the two back ones need to be the same.. and front one can be different if needed.
