help: drive shaft alignment
i need help with pump alignment . i have a 2001 gpr that i belive is out of alignment . pump started making noise and no pressure . when i removed the pump and shaft i noticed that the splines were worn off the shaft . also the pump has a 2 inch extention on it . so i decided that it was time to install an 05 pump . the shaft seems to be in a bind lifting the pump housing about a quarter of an inch above the mounting holes . where do i need to start .

Earl, if the splines are stripped, you need to replace the drive shaft and the intermediate shaft just to be safe.
You can download the service manual and it will give you all of the alignment specs. You will have to align it when you remove the engine to put the new intermediate shaft in it.

Earl I agree with Jeff if the splines are worn you need to replace components. Then align the motor last WFO had a great post on an easy method I am searching for it and will post link.

WFO's method is to put the motor in and get everything hooked up. Just start the motor mount bolts and then just bump the starter a few times. The engine will "self align" and then you just tighten the motor mount bolts.
