    authorized sea doo dealers should have one if they have a shop also. do not purchase one from SBT as they are sized all wrong.

    im betting that you mark the front engine mount and the bolt that hold it down and then line up the marks...thats what I did and it seems to work pretty good. no problems yet

    Just make sure that the motor is right before you mark it. I have seen a few from the Factory that are wayyyyy out

    With the driveshaft inserted in it's normal position into the PTO, swing the driveshaft side to side inside the tunnel and note the bind points on each side. If it swings more to one side than the other, loosen the mounts and swing the engine in the front until you have it equal on both sides. Do the same vertically and shim as needed.

    Yeah...mine was way out from the factory. Carbs weren't synced properly either.

    Interesting idea 96XP, will this work for a two piece drive shaft setup like my 97 XP?

    You have to align it differently, I've had buds use quarters to align the engine to the front driveshaft. They used a quarter as a shim to measure on each side, and shifted the engine to get the same gap on both sides.
    I've never tried the back shaft, but I'd bet it would work the same.
