    I have a 1992 Fountain Fever 32 with twin 502's. I have owned it for a year. I know that it was repowered a few years ago. My issue is, the stbd motor is out of alignment and the Fountain's don't have provisions for traditional alignment. I wonder if it is possible that when the motor was...

    Well thanks to Hass and others input on the inducer issue which turned into Greg S. twisting my arm and talking me into a MPD LoPro intake setup :-) How much is this gonna throw off my DL angle ? It's no big deal as I've got to install new motor rails but how much is it off from Original pump ?

    Harland Sharp 1.7s. Alignment is off quite a bit on roller to stem ( side to side). Without a lot of cutting and bending the guide plates Brodix supplied will not work. Has anyone used the adjustable guide plates? Also thinking of the crower or jesel sportsman series shaft mount if I really need...

    Starting to re-rig my Bahner.... Got to the stage where i installed the Jet housing to the suction housing and noticed a problem. The jethousing is offset to one side.... (Perhaps 4-5mm). Its seems all the bolt holes drilled through the jet housing are offset to the right (When looking front...

    After towing the 21 home, then back out to the Shack I was thinking. It tows heavy... REAL heavy, and killed my gas mileage. Though I don't see any abnormal tire wear, I decided to check axle spacing just for the hell of it. On the right side, the axle spacing is 5/8" less than the left side so...

    Sorry if thats a dumb question. In my case neither axle has brakes. I have been using this blue crap that says marine from the place I bought the axle. Yesterday was the 4th trip to the lake on a new axle this year....got home after a short hourish drive to and back from the pond and both sides...

    Hey guys... getting ready to do an engine R and R on my 454 bravo one set up, I'm going to pull out my tired engine and replace it with a fresh long block on the engine stand, can I get some advice on the proceedure? I plan on marking everything such as wiring, plumbing etc. to get it back where...

    My Dad needs some alignment bunks for his trailer and neither of us has time to build something. The trailer has plastic fenders, not the typical steel fenders as seen on pretty much every trailer I've ever looked at on here. We're hoping to find something that can clamp itself onto the frame...

    I've got a Water Cooled Casale V-drive in my Hallet Mini Cruiser and would like to check the propshaft alignment as there seems to be some vibes over and above the 2 blade menkens prop. I've done many skiboat type alignments using a feeler gauge between the flat flanges but my current setup...

    I have an F-350 Crew Cab long bed that needs an alignment. I 've been to two places and the truck is to big for the rack. Any suggestions for a GOOD shop in the Alta Loma area? Thanks! Back to yard work...:|err
