    I am replacing the engine in my Dateline,presently the rubber coupling between engine and jet drive is running at an angle of just under 5.5 degrees.
    Do I need to straighten this connection up or is that perfectly acceptable for this type of coupling?

    yes look only cv types like running out
    so do you know how to set up using a clock dial? if not then straight edge and feeler gauges
    there are two types of alignment Parrellel and angular
    if you have a messenger like msn or yahoo I can talk you thru this
