    i believe i have it the pics tell alot...the two problems i my self have found in the past. have been in the same area...themax angle the boat can turn and maintain the speed is the amount of angle it can turn with out binding..the only other thing thats has any is the amount of clearence that has changed do to difference in ujoint if not exactly the same..noticed the shaft was tilted up ward it has been my trial and error to find out just how much i can turn or tilt ... .. thats the most important part of setup.. after studding i believe thats it...thank you for emailing.oh bench test it with trial and error.SETUP BIG part of the best run.........putput. pics were great
