    I am starting to realize that the jetaway i installed this year is going to be the single best addition to the whole boat. you will either have to pull the motor or the pump to install the unit. You will probably get away without moving the motor if you have the boat in your avatar. I had a SWTD, and the driveshaft was over a foot long. your problem will be reaching back there in the pod to engage/disengage it. All you have to do is remove the bearing cover, double drill the thrust bearing housing, set your tolerances for the bearing, and make sure you put some type of sealant between the shaft, and the collar the seal rides on, i had a heck of a leack, bypassing the seal between this sleeve and the shaft, had to remove the pump, disassemble the unit, apply bearing and sleeve loctite to the shaft, then re-assemble, other than that it was painless. It took me longet to relocate my motor (in my TX19) than it did to install the jetaway. i am sure it would have been easier with a rail kit though.

    You need to flip the seal the opposite direction behind the shaft bearing or it will leak bad.

    Here are a couple. I later found out I could've slid the motor back another 1/4". Apparently the snapring on the pump shaft can/should meet the front of the jetaway. Once everything is set and positioned the snapring can be removed prior to final assembly. No big though. I've been running mine like it is in the photos for 3 years. I just cheated myself out of a 1/4".

    If you can drill and tap the holes straight without pulling the housing your the man, I tried it on my SWTD, upside down...long story short, pulled the housing had to have a few holes welded up and start over...LOL

    Highly advise that you dont try that, unless you do this stuff everyday thats a tough thing to do. A drill guide is your friend if your gonna try that

    X 2 I used a 1/4" drive socket that would fit the bore of the jet-a-way and ran the drill through the socket bore! It works good for a guide and cheap! 2 would even work better!

    Your bolts look a little short that are holding your grate. You might want to take alook at them. Also no ubolts around caps on ujoint.
