Stormtrooper666 or something like that, had a big "dissertation/do it my way or you'll go to hell" session on it a while back!

Here's a FAQ webpage that has the information on shaft alignment, just scroll all the way to the bottom. I have used this procedure and it worked well for me.

You'd be in trouble if you ran out of toilet paper!

OK...I read most of that thread (linked) and it specified a Direct Drive unit should turn using a pinky. What about a V-drive?
Thanks,

I would think about the same!

If that's the case...I got some work to do!

It could be the added resistance if the V-drive adds to the friction. I'd check or have checked the clearances of the coupler just for the giggles of it to see if it's in a bind!

That's what I'd like to confirm. I do know that my shaft is not very well centered where it comes thru the hull.

Remember that the suggestion was that you should be able to turn it with a pinky finger with the shaft packing loose. There is always going to be friction there.

I did mine this winter, and frankly I have an opinion that's even more extreme than Storm861Triple, but "which this margin is too narrow to contain". Maybe I'll write it up someday.
