    Honda R12X Engine Alignment

    Hi,

    Just rebuilt the motor in my R12x and am wondering what is the best way of checking the alignment of the motor without the alignment tool.

    I have changed some of the engine mounts and the bottom end isnt the original one to the hull so I just wanting to double check everything before i first start it up

    Thanks

    Brett

    Hey Brett,

    Just rebuilt the engine in my F12x. Second time putting it back in the hull. There are probably several ways to do it. I use feeler gauges to check the gap between couplers all the way around. After getting that even i just make sure the jet pump and crank coupler "float" and do not bind.

    Thank you for the reply, Picked up a set of feeler gauges on my way home yesterday so ill give that a go.

    What Oil did you use to run the motor in?
