1985 18. The current owner hit a rock or a log and broke the gimbal. It was replaced, but the engine would not line up. Motormounts were lowered to lowest setting and would still not line up. The stringer had to be notched to get it to line up. Anyone have any idea why the engine would nto line up after gimball replacement? Engine is a 350 with Alpha Gen 1. See attached pic.
