2003 ProStar Rudder/Prop Position

Rudder/Prop Positon…Any one know what side the drive shaft for a 2003 197 Prostar is to be on? LEFT OR RIGHT OF RUDDER..Strut might be bent or badly mounted or just a bad cast strut.


1st. UNBOLTED… With the Drive shaft unbolted The shaft is already touching the Shaft LOG…3 O'clock position, with drip shaft seal moved forward of LOG…Half to flex shaft to even try to center in log..

2nd. Looks like strut problems…So

3rd. " THE BIG QUESTION…What is the correct 'Rudder/Prop Position for a 2003 ProStar?

Currently the drive shaft is on the PORT ~ LEFT side of Rudder..pulled drive shaft out on Port ~ left side of the rudder..I've seen some pics of V drives with Rudder/Prop Position Starboard ~ drive shaft Right of Rudder.

4TH. LOOKING AT A NEW STRUT? ALREADY DRIVE SHAFT TOUCHING LOG ~ UNBOLTED/DRIPLESS SEAL MOVED FORWARD

Not sure the 2003 is any different than my 2002. My rudder is directly in line with my drive shaft
