    I used EP wheel bearing grease, this new motor has a larger cam so it idles higher, you could hear it pretty good with the old one.

    Yes, we use the Extreme pressure grease. This set up has been in the boat since 2003, still has the black oxide coating on the splines !

    New motor is in and aligned the motor and v-drive today, when setting the shaft with the lock collars should i tighten everything up or allow the shaft some play, say an 1/8th of an inch.
    Thanks
