    Engine\ pump alignment really necessary ?

    Is it really necessary to align the engine to pump on Polaris skis ? Never did on my Pro 785's. Something I should really be doing ?

    It only needs to be aligned if it is out of alignment.

    The only way to check alignment is to align it. Or wait for the splines to strip out.....

    All the factory original engined Polaris skis I've ever alignment checked... were still spot on. It was only the one with a different engine that needed correcting.

    So, if you got a new engine... or removed your original engine and messed up the shim counts... or removed/replaced the jet pump base... then I'd say "yes"... you should consider an alignment.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for all the posts. Did not know if was must do. Would always mark and replace the shims when puling the engine. I read posts here before that some members were making the tool. Does anyone still make them ?

    I actually have not been keeping tabs on who still offers the alignment tool.

    So so when you find out, post the info!
