    Arrow Looking for MSX alignment tool (SPX PW-46592)

    Apparently I need to do a better job of checking the alignment in my MSX 140.

    Yesterday I replaced a newly rebuilt MSX through-hull bearing carrier with only a dozen hours on it. It had been shaken apart with vibration from the spider drive shaft coupler. Two of the three carrier shaft seals were completely dislodged from the housing and even the side grease seal on the actual ball bearing was ejected!

    I put another complete bearing carrier in the hull (spare parts are a good thing) and added a few shims under the engine to get the alignment 'closer' to correct. It is hard to know when you have the alignment exactly right on an MSX since the rubber spider allows things to shift around while working with the long alignment rod.

    Now I am on the hunt for the special Polaris/SPX tool needed to properly check alignment on the MSX style drive lines.

    Who might have one for sale?

    What I need is the part that goes on the engine output shaft in place of the PTO spider coupler to receive the long alignment tool.

    I suppose I could use a regular splined solid driveshaft coupler but I thought I would try to find the genuine tool since my first alignment attempt was obviously nowhere near close enough.
