    Home-Made Engline Alignment Tool RXP

    This might be the closest thing to an alignment tool. All it is, is wood.

    I wan't to make sure when the engine goes back in that I can get all three dimensions back to where they were. Side to Side, Front to Back, and Vertical.

    I've got my green marker out and arrows to check to see if my pieces are wood are flush with the surfaces of the engine.

    I've marked in tape along the edges of the hull so I know exactly where the alignment device goes. Also there are 4 wood stop blocks underneath the 2 cross pieces that snug up this alignment tool to the hull.

    See here what you think...

    Done just in time to go shoot fireworks. Happy 4th everybody!.

    I guess if you can use this devise to position the engine back in the same place that it was, then it can't hurt. I think that the problem will be that you only have to be a few millimeters out at the engine end, to throw the shaft a long way out. If you are close to a dealer it would pay to simply get him to check the alignment with his tool before completing the assembly. he shouldn't charge too much for that, and it would give you peace of mind.
    If you have been successful he should be able to confirm this in a few minutes. If not, you get it in the right place, bolt it up, and take the ski home to complete.

    Hey Z06 that's better, I thought It was going to cost something like 300 dollars to have the engine realigned. I'm probably going to take that offer. Also 3K, that sure is alot I was hoping for like 1000 if I could find. one. But may be I won't be so lucky. I've seen 2,000 from a forum members.

    I will PM you later Z06 about the tool. Thanks again.

    you know what guys. I just looked at the pictures I submitted and Now I can see why everybodies got the big eyes going on. I'm just hearing that one banjo song from Deliverance in the background. It really looks hillbilly doesn't it? haha, Im a dork... LOL
