    PTO seal flap overlapping carbon seal??

    the shaft is not in yet, just wondering if this is normal since there is no top hat holding the boot back some. It looks a little extreme but the engine aligned perfectly with one shim.

    I think until you put the shaft if with the steel hat and clip in postion, there is nothing to hold it back. Although fully assembled i don't recall it looking like that. Is it possible you have the engine to far towards the back on the mounts?

    Try to finish putting the shaft in with top hat and clip and re judge it. You may have to move the engine towards the front a little more. You do need to have it back far enough to put the right pressure on the carbon seal so it doesn't leak though.

    I marked the front mount before the engine was removed and aligned it back in perfectly. Rear mounts are brand new and the alignment is spot on. I'm hoping it's just the bellows not having and force pushing it back. The only reason I even care is the driveshaft will be too far out and the pump won't go on if somehow it shifted backwards too much

    Edit.
    It looks off but I think once the shaft is in place it will look different.

    See what happens when you put the shaft in with the c clip. it might spread the two apart some.

    You'll find out for sure because if the engine is to far back you most likely will not be able to push the hat back far enough to get the clip on. If you do get it on just make sure it doesn't feel like the bellow is smash down to tight from being push back to hard. Meaning once you get the top hat assembled use your better judgement on the squish of the bellow. Adjust accordingly.
