    How do you align an engine

    I have a 99 xlt1200 that had an sbt blow up. I removed the engine and there were no shims. the intermediate shaft has some play (how much is too much) but turns freely. the rubber around the bearing seems good and the bearing action is smooth. I found a 03 1200 complete that i will put back in. How do I align the engine and coupler? the Sbt website gives some help but is it good advice. I thought you guys would know better
