I am installing a 4 cylinder Beta Marine engine 36 hp to replace my old Westerbeke 4107. I am wondering if someone has done this. I am wondering how to calculate the engine shaft/shaft alignement. The Beta Marine is 4" narrower and I am installing wider aluminium rails between the mounting blocks. At this point I do not know whether I will need to raise or lower the forward or the rear mounting blocks. Lifting the engine in and out until I get it right is a too expensive option. So I am hoping somebody had encountered a similar situation when changing to a different type engine. Also has anyone installed CV joints or Aquadrive system ? Has anyone tried a feathering 3 bladed prop ?
