I would.

Just take off the orings. As long as it goes in nice and smooth with no binding it should do fine.
Congrats and use the measure twice cut once rule when assembling.
Cheers
Paul

actually there is a long, about 5' long shaft that fits into the back of the shaft...then you turn the engine over ..where it should show you if it's out of alignment...if your not sure..tkae it to a pro...let them align the engine and you can add the drive later...but engine alignment is a very serious step..
