View Full Version : Engine/Driveshaft Alignment - '81 S&S

My friend has an '81 S&S,and he pulled the engine to rebuild the rotten stringers in the hull (and rebuild most everything else). It's now time to reinstall the engine, and I know we need to align the trans flange to the prop shaft flange. How is that done properly?
I know some specs exist for alignment, but his owner's manual seems to be missing; in '81 the manual was carved into stone tablets, and they didn't come with the boat.
The local shop has promised to do the alignment for him, at about the time the lake will freeze over.
Any help will be most appreciated. Thanks!
