I bought the Mercury ITS tool. It works on A's and B's. I like it better than the standard alignment tool.

It's at the bottom of this page.

In what way is this tool better than the standard? Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I could understand after reading the details, whith the center portion sliding and turning, I guess that instead of taking the whole tool in and out while trying to align the engine, you leave it in and only play with the center portion. Is that it?

The outer piece fits into the gimbal bearing. At that point you can look through and get a good visual if the alighment is close. Then you slide the inner piece into the coupler.

OK now I got it. I'll see if I can get my hands on one of these here in Quebec. Thanks.
