Read my profile signature before you laugh too hard on this one!!
I keep reading about shimming the motor while using the infamous Beerdart alignment tool and I dont know what to do.
Is there specific type of shims to use? I've used wood shims to mount a house door other than that..........

I think I included some shims in the box? The shims are washers that you put under the mounts to align the motor.

I have a question about adjusting the motor with shims for alignment.
Will I have to lift up the motor everytime to add or subtract a shim? I am just a little confused about this whole part of the build and want to get it right the first time!!

I too purchased an alighnment tool from B_D, I kinda cheated though. When I was shimming the engine, I cut slots in the shims so that I would not have to lift the engine totally off the studs . Granted this isnt the "Best" way to do it.. But I have done two engines, and it cut the install time down dramatically.. Especially on my 750 where it is such a royal pain in the arse to lift the engine with the oil tank in the boat.
