Thanks for the info guys.
I brought the boat about 6 months ago. The surveyor found a bad cutless bearing. I had the marina where it was change it. I did not know at the time that they didn't realign the shaft. Two months later it blew a trans oil line and overheated the trans and caught fire. When I pulled the trans I found the rusted shafts on the rear motor mounts. The trans shop said it was out of align pretty bad because the tail end was worn bad. So now I wonder if they even changed the cutless or the had the prop serviced. I guess I will cut and change the pillow block and see if the vibration is gone. Thanks again
