A few engine reinstall questions.
Hi guys, I've finally got my motor back in the hull. I'm waiting on my engine alignment tool turning up before I go ahead and connect everything so just wanted to ask a few questions.
1. When I use the alignment tool do I leave the new pto bearing with rubber boot off or is it best to connect it to the motor for the alignment?
2. When filling up with oil where would I stop with the engine being cold? I know it needs to be in the middle of the 2 bends when the engine is warm but I'm filling up a engine that has been compleatly drained from the engine being apart.

Should download the free manual... has everything.. http://www.seadoomanuals.net
Looking at the manual you put the adapter tool into the pto housing but the carbon ring carrier is still there but wouldnt hurt taking it off. it just follows the drive shaft.
As for oil if your engine is dead empty (new) i would nearly just fill it with the 4.5L but if its just a service empty would just do the 3L.
If its a new engine or rebuild with no oil in the oil gallerys i fill with enough oil, i remove the spark plugs and crank it over for a little bit to get engine oil pressure up and around the bearings. then throw plugs back in and start and check oil.

yes leave the rubber boot & bearing OFF to get the BEST alignment otherwise the bearing makes the alignment pin hang forward and down......GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

thanks mate. Yeah I have the manual but it shows the bearing in place and my thought was it might be best not to fit it, but I wanted to check incase it needed to be for some reason.
Yeag as the pto cover has been off to upgrade flywheel bolts so the engine has been emptied of oil. Thanks again mate
