Went to test fit the new strut tonight and it is way off center in the shaft log. So took the log out to see if it was mounted out of line and it was not. The shaft is down and to the starboard side of the boat. I loosened the strut bolts up and have decided it is almost like the strut needs to be shimmed in the back to pick the shaft up in the log. My gut tells me that is not the correct answer, but I don't know what else to try. My question is do you think I should see if my the dealer will swap the strut for another one? Could there be that much difference in the tolerances on new struts. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
No announcement yet.
New strut and the shaft is rubbing the log
