    Check your engine alignment (pic)

    Well Carbon seal was leaking so i decided to get a new one and align the engine while i was at it and holy shit was it off. look at the pic. took 3 shims per side on the rear to get it lines up and 4 shims on the front mount. but now it slides in like butter.

    IMO your motor mounts are also worn/soft .....that's why you needed so many shims

    Where did you get your alignment tool from? Was it a pain in the ass to do?

    borrowed it from a local guy. Its not hard to do at all. Hardest part is reaching the front shims

    I'm surprised my OEM motor mounts are still in one piece after almost 300hrs. And I have yet to suspect any real misalignment to worry about...I'm just getting curious/paranoid as I approach 300hrs.

    Can any of the motor mounts be replaced 1 at a time without disturbing the alignment at all?

    no if you replace mounts you need to check the alignment. I've seen factory fresh skis more off than that but it is still bad.. RHAAS mounts...

    sometimes you are the hammer

    most of the times you are the nail.

    I've been mostly lucky with engine alignments after repalcing something that called for it to be checked..however the couple I had trouble with ..welll...

    we always try to remeber the good times right?
