Yanmars do dance around a lot at idle and sometimes the shaft hits the stern tube like on mine so I went with a Pythondrive like a lot of yanmar
owners do. Pythondrive is now run out of NZ but there are others like Sigma drive or Aquadrive which are so close alike that I'd be willing to bet that most of the parts
will interchange. See my post above.
