Consider the small high-speed pump setup below (measurements in mm). This was one of three new pumps at a water wastewater plant. Alignment must be done on the system using the reverse method of alignment, especially since the pumps operate at a higher speed.

The following measurements were made (motor = dial indicator reading on indicator closest to motor, pump = dial indicator reading on indicator closest to pump): Using these readings, suggest shims and left-right moves on the machine in order to align it.
