So I've been searching and searching, I can't find any information on how to Align my prop shaft engine and such.

I just hit 500 Hours and felt like I should probably check that while i'm doing all the fluids and maintenance items this week.

I have the tools to do it, Just no information on how to do it.

Any insight from the guys that have done it themselves?

Thanks!

-Don

Should probably mention it's a 2009 Axis A22.

I am stubborn and semi retarded but my opinion is, if ain't broke, don't fix it. If the boat isn't vibrating it probably fine.

Also, you have a 9 year old boat and just now hitting 500. Quit drinking beer in the garage while sitting in it and use it.

Find a PCM engine manual. They have a good set of instructions for it.

Basically, you loosen the coupler bolts on the driveshaft where it meets the vdrive and check it with a feeler gauge. No one side should have more than .004 of a gap than any other side.

As much as I love this comment and beer, I live in Green Bay,WI. My boating season is like 3 months long.

If anyone else in the future needs the section from the PCM manual for Engine alignment I attached it.

Well can't attach a pdf.

Sooo, here's the link to the WHOLE pcm manual.

Pages 48-51 are what you need.
