Question Gear housing question?

Hi, I am in a bind, the marina where I do business is closed today. I am in the process of resealing and replacing the impeller and seals in the lower drive. After a frustrating day yesterday of removing the remaining pieces of two broken off bolts in the casing. I have finally got everything clean and ready to reassemble and I decided to pull up and down on the driveshaft, is there supposed to be a lot of end play while it is disassembled or do I have a problem.? Alpha One Gen2 drive unit.

I answered your question over on the other thread....there is supposed to be some end play...what that spec is ...I don't know....check with the local merc rep or your local repair ctr.....I know there is some end play but how much is unknown...your going to need a dial indicator to know..
