    Jeff, I had a similar question last week, and I was told to use the 3M 5200 if I do not use the pump plug kit.

    5200 will work. But remember that it expands as it dries.

    If you are filling large voids or cavities with this it will never cure, take it apart after a month and still wet. Use epoxy or aqua mend in the stick form.
