Engine Install and a few other ??'s - More questions
I'm about to FINALLY put my motor back in... I have searched alignment and install... Is there any pointers out there I may need to get that thing in the hull? Should I wait to put the carb Rack on? How do you get the exhaust bolts torques to spec?
Also, does anybody know what size nut goes on the ball-headed bolt for the QSTS (attaches to the stearing nozzle) and what size bolt is used to mount the speedo gauge to the rideplate?

Bolt's to mount the speedo to the rideplate: M5 x 8mm (countersink).
How to get the exhaust bolts to the torque spec? Use a torque wrench, I know it's really tight in there, but should be possible.
You find the torque sprcification in the service manual (download here in the forum).
In the service manual you should find some help with the allignment or download a motor swap instruction from sbt (remanufactured motors).
The size of the nut for the QSTS should aslo be in the service manual!
Good luck, I just installed my motor last week, hopefully I can break in in this weekend!

I installed mine with the carb rack off, exhaust manifold on. Trim coupler is an M5 nut. Align the motor with the pump installed follow the manual.

Ok.. Thanks for all the info. I put the beast in last night. It was easier than I expected... Except for the Riva Splash guard.. It kept hanging up the motor and wouldn't let me slide the motor back. I do have one tip for installing the motor and Rubber biscuit(spacer):
After you do the initial motor alignment, put the rubber biscuit in and get the motor aligned as best you can. Try and line up at least part of the couplers and biscuit. Spin the couplers around and work each ear of the little rubber biscut into the couplers. It may take a bit of moving the engine around to do it. Once the couplers and biscuit are aligned, the motor will slide easily. I bolted the engine to the motor mounts to help keep the motor shims in place and used the engine hoist to help move the motor in place.
It's on to the carbs, fuel lines and water routing. I am sure I'll have more questions. Thanks.

Ok... A couple more. Where do I ground the battery to the motor? Also, I have 2 cables runing from the tank area, 1 for the throttle and another I don't know what for. Oil pump? Choke? It's bigger than the throttle cable.

motor grounds to battery on a bolt behind the starter. move the choke lever and see if the cable end moves. if not it's probably the oil pump.
