    Default Motor placement.

    I added a jet-away to a stealth now it seem I need to pull the motor back about an 1” to 1 1/2” or forward about the same (can’t seem to find or have a driveline made where I would not Have to move it). Motor sits at 24” from transom now would it be better to set it back or move it ahead? Thanks.

    With the driveline I have its 13.5” end to end I need 9”, driveline shop said they could not make it 9” needs to be about 10.5 end to end, that will slide the motor forward approx 1.5” if I buy a 1350 they measure 8” end to end, if I can’t get a 9” would it be better to slide the motor forward or back? Or does that small amount matter, Thanks.

    Hello People

    Heres a 6 inch shaft correct way to measure others measure a way only Einstein can figure out and you still need a 1/4 inch play or bye bye thrust bearing and crank.and I have a pic of the last one made for me a tad longer.

    I would buy a new one but kinda broke from sitting home with this injury, the boat is 100% done just waiting to splash and still looking for a gently used Life Line jacket ,back to the drive line guy he needs to stick the yolk in and measure the remaining distance get a overall measurement minus a 1/4" and have one made easy peasy

    No, I was calling end to end from the flange that bolt to the PTO to the slip yoke where it would butt the snap ring on the jetaway, I think the motor is moved back to accommodate a back seat so moving it forward is not an issue, Thanks.
