    Twenty Dollar Pump Seal Job

    I am not sure if this has been discussed before but here it is. Go to somewhere like Hobby Lobby and buy two part casting resin. Mix two part liquid and pour into pump shoe cavities and in about three minutes you have a perfect rubber block for the cavity. You can line the shoe with a releasing agent to remove the block or you can just let the resin adhere to the shoe. The company that makes the resin is called Aluminite.

    Sorry for the poor spelling. It is pretty good stuff and there is no waiting for the 4200 to dry.

    You still need to seal with 4200 when you install the shoe.

    Yes that is the one. There also is another type that many stores carry. The box is purple and the resulting plugs are a hard plastic instead of rubber. The only thing is that you only have about a minute from the time you mix the liquids until the reaction takes place so you have to work quickly.
