    Engine shims

    I'm dropping the engine back in my 99 GP 1200 and I just started to shim the engine so the couplers are level to eachother. I don't have the pump installed yet and I was wondering if it would make a difference. Should I install the pump first?

    Rob,
    Yes you should have the pump installed it lines up the intermediate shaft.

    Rob do a search on engine alignment WFO had some great tips on easy alignment I will use it next time I do one, which will be soon. I do not remember verbatim what was posted but I believe he leveled up and down barely tightened the bolts and turned over the engine and let the engine align the rest do a search it was great post.
