But I'm probably being paranoid. I expect you meant the jetdrive to the hull rather than the motor to the drive, but better safe than sorry
I do mean the motor to the jet unit. I am of course aware of using screws that are too long. I have some allen screws I have tried and I have tried with the normal screws from the stock motor. My problem is when I attempt to stick the screws through the motor mount of the jet unit, they will not go in straight, even before I try screwing them into the motor. The screw heads are getting stuck against the side of the drive where the coupler fits inside. It was similar when I took the stock motor off. It will be easier to explain when I'm done work this evening by just posting a picture. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and my explanation is probably rubbish lol.
Thanks fellas, will get back to you this evening.
