I bent the prop on the boat, since my dealer is 2 hours away I decided to check prop alignment. It's .018 at 3 of clock. So I loosened the trunnion bolt at all four mounts, tried to move the engine and nothing. I used a pry bar with my knees it will not move. It seems like it's maxed out. Has anyone run into this. Should I worry about the gap. Please help.

Are you sure your strut or prop-shaft isn't bent, before you go moving the engine around?

if i rotate the coupler in 90 degree increments it the gap is the same, so from what i read that means that shaft is true. The strut doesn't appear to be bent. Also i couldn't get the motor to move at all in the direction that i needed it to move. what would it hurt do ride with it like that for awhile

everything, don't do it.

how far away from 100 hr service? alignment should be checked every 100 hours.
Why are you moving the engine around in the first place? dinging a prop doesn't lead to engine alignment. whats .018? not sure what you mean by prop "alignment"?

I think he means coupler alignment

Take a feeler gauge and see if you can fit it around the coupler. if it's tighter in one place than it is the other, your engine and shaft aren't aligned. Unless you destroyed your prop it takes quite a bit to throw the alignment out of wack. I'd contact a local shop to check it out or your dealer. Anytime your get into shaft, strut, or Alignment, most people don't have the right knowledge to get everything back to how it should be. And DO NOT run the boat if you think anything is misaligned or bent. It can do some real damage to your internals. Good luck
