    Question Engine re-install question/shim plates

    I am about to re-install my first out-of-ski engine rebuild. I didn't take it out, someone else did. My question is: When i drop it back in, how do I allign the engine, and what is the reason and proper install (guide?) of the "shims". I have searched here but when I do a shim search, all I get is ride plate info! HELP!

    don't remember if the manual mentions it but when you do the alignment do it with the rubber coupler doughnut out of the ski. If the rubber doughnut is in place it will look aligned when it's not..
