    Engine-Pump alignment tool & crank jig

    I am going to be installing two polaris engines soon 95-sl750 and a 96 slt 780. I need to alighn the engines but I hate to spend 140 dollars on the shaft. I have no local dealers to help. I could make one, but to be honest I have no idea what they look like. Is there a trick that would keep me from having to purchase the tool?
    Second question, I can clean, prep, rebuild cranks, Is there a jig I can buy or make to make sure they are properly alighned??
    Thanks Guys.. Michael

    Contact beerdart, he rents the alignment tool and even tosses in a few shims if needed.

    As far as the tool goes, Beerdart makes the and sells the fairly inexpensively.
    And the cranks? Save yourself the frustration and buy em rebuilt. They'll be a pain in the arse to index.

    Do you have a Clymers repair manual? It tells you how to check the index of your crank using a dial indicator and a degree wheel. Now changing the index is a whole different story...

    Yup, I have the manual. But it does me no good to try and check the index on the crank when I have it on a press.. Unless I know what the specs, and or position are. I will contact beerdart thank you. He has been very helpfull so far..

    wouldn't you just verify 120 degrees?

    hehe, seriously, No i think there is more to it than that. But please prove me wrong..
