    If the alignment is perfect button it up the pump shoe is proportionate to the alignment. If of course the pump shoe was installed with the alignment in question. It Does not matter what the end of the shaft looks like centered off center etc, what matters is driveshaft centered with Crankshaft center Via a alignment tool not the naked eye

    Yes.... it does matter how the shaft comes through the hull. The carbon ring position is relative to the thru hull fitting, and the support hat is relative to the drive shaft. With that being said, you can have perfect engine alignment.... but not good carbon ring to hat alignment if your pump shoe is out of alignment. Pump shoe alignment is the first priority.... then engine alignment.

    I had to stop building a transmission to respond to this I thought I once again I overlooked something . Lets break it down slowly pump shoe, with smaller diameter inner's. I push my alignment tool through it (pump shoe) and it passes through and it goes to the center of my crankshaft. As stated the alignment is perfect!!!! . I can slide my shaft easily through my pump shoe to my crank thats all that matters. The carbon ring is on the shaft itself it has no barring at all in relation to the alignment as it does not mount or hold the shaft center (its on a boot and has flexability) in movement but yet only provides seal. I am no expert on seadoo's never have never will but common sense just kicks in. Maybe we are somehow not on the same page.

    I setup every ski the same way with absolutely no problems

    In short its like saying once your done with the alignment put the carbon ring,boot and top hat and recheck.
