I welded in the plates for the pillow block bearings today and started fitting the shaft. It is important that the u-joints are as straight as possible from the top view. Since the shaft is offset a bit at the rear it isn't possible to get it perfect so I'll do the best I can. when I'm satisfied I'll drill the bolt holes. Then it's a matter of shimming the bearings and aligning the bearings in their housings.
