    did you use the aligment tool or guess work. if you moved the engine to chang the coupling it may not have lined up properly when you put it back.

    Did you use Locktite or something similar on the bolts? They could be coming loose.

    If the leg is up and your running out of the water it will be more noisy than in the water.
