    I'm a tad confused by the way you posted this.

    The pump plug kit that goes into the shoe should be level (flush) with the mounting surface of the shoe. I made sure that the large triangular pieces were flush as well. If that is not the case, then you can wire wheel them and get them close, then sand them down to get it perfect.

    It is extreemly critical to seal the mounting surfaces on the shoe, especially where the transom plate and shoe potentially will contact (the felt seal area and the whole back portion of the shoe). Use a high quality sealant such as 3M 5200, but if you use this stuff, make sure that the shoe is put on properly the first time. The shoe position is difficult to change once once the selant hardens.

    There are some really good post if you do a search on pump plug kits. Look for a post with pictures.
