[Public-List] stern tube question

Don't forget that the motor was probably dropped in before the deck went on 
so that the weight and alignment would be done with the aid of lifting 
devices, and the possibility of having a measurement device at the end of 
the shaft that one could roll in and roll out as needed. It sure beats 
trying to slide motors aft and have them suspended with a chain falls with 
forces you really do not want trying to take the motor forward as you 
position it! I would think that the mould would be fairly consistent, but 
things like the metal motor mounts in the mould that have the threads and 
castings on the block for mounting might slightly different and the rubber 
would definitely be different motor to motor. People on the line have a way 
of figuring out production problems in practical ways and the ability to 
improvise then was probably greater than it is now.

I expect that if you do this work regularly on such similar boats that
you know just how much to shim to correct the alignment you see.
