What is the pump shoe and why would it need to be aligned?

The pump shoe, is the pump support plate or housing, it is bolted/sealed onto the hull, going to the back of the boat, then on top of that you have the pump itself, the impeller/wear ring, then the venturi, and finally the steering nozzle and the reverse bucket.
As far as i know (correct me if i'm wrong) ....it's not the pump shoe itself that got to be aligned, but rather the engine who's got to be aligned to the pump shoe, and this is what these tools are for....you bolt the tools to the pump shoe, and then it serve you for doing the correct drive shaft/engine alignment versus the hull/pump shoe.
I've removed the pump shoe on my Jetboat once and never had to realign anything after re-assembling it...as long as you do not touch the engine mounts you are ok...keep in mind that the pump shoe have one single fixed place to bolt onto, as the engine can be either shimmed on the motor mounts, or the motor mounts themself could be installed off centered moving the driveshaft out of centering for the pump.

Jeepster just so u got it straight my man!
1) u align your pump shoe (if out) to the hull boot that goes through your hull to allow your drive shaft through to the motor. making sure the drive line tool is centered in the hull boot just as u would want your driveshaft to be when entering that boot to go into the back of your motor or the PTO hole in your motor.
2) after u properly silicone to the hull and align your pump shoe to your hull boot u then align your motor to the drive line shaft tool that is passing through the center of your hull boot mounted to your pump shoe with the tool plate.
3) depending on the motor mounts u put back the misaligment of your previoulsy installed pump shoe will determine the amount of shims required to either be added or removed from under the (3) motor mounts in your craft.
4) if you go to the thread "2007 rxp thread of the year" i have pics and a small vid of what the male tool should look like when porperly aligned going in and out of the other female tool that is placed in the PTO portion of your rear motor for porper alignment.
not sure that exaplins it but its:
PUMP SHOE TO HULL BOOT FIRST ALIGNMENT
MOTOR TO PUMP SHOE SECOND SECOND ALIGNMENT
THEN U SHOULD HAVE TRUE ALIGNMENT FROM THE REAR MOTOR PTO TO THE FRONT INLET OF YOUR PROP IN YOUR PUMP. HENCE DRIVE SHAFT ALIGMENT TRUED TO THE HULL AS BEST IT CAN BE WITH THESE TOOLS!
