      the more aggressively you set the wedge, the more it acts like a brake.

      I'm not even sure how I have never noticed this but starboard side wheels are definitely up in the fender more than I would like.  I thought it was a fender adjustment until I broke out the tape measure and also realized the fender only adjust side to side on my 2008 Boatmate.  In further investigation and taking off front left front right wheels, you can clearly see the starboard side torsion axles have been adjusted up into the fender and the port/left side are adjusted down and away from the fender  (port/left side is the correct adjustment).  Whomever had this boat before me must have adjusted the starboard/right side the wrong way and never realized either.  It's also not visible to me that the boat has a gangsta lean, which is why I never noticed.

      For the life of me and 2 years supply of PB drenched all over, I can't get this spline to budge.  I followed a boatmate torsion adjustment video and I tried to open the C clamp over the spline with a metal wedge to loosen the metal, but maybe the male geared spline goes over a female spline and I have to remove the entire thing, then adjust?

      Thanks guys. Yeah Altitude was high. 4000 ft, and RPMS were super high. Would lifting the wedge help or hurt?

      Any issues getting the crank pulley off? I just kept spinning the crank. 

      It's been a while, I can't remember.  Maybe wedge a piece of wood between the water pump and the pulley?  They are small bolts so it shouldn't take too much torque.

      The impeller belt comes off by removing/loosening the impeller bolts, one that slides along the bracket and one that it pivots on.  Then you can take the alternator belt off.  But before that can come off you need to remove the crank pulley (4 bolts on the front of it).
