Waterweld: Some Firm, Some Not
Last night I used rope, duct tape and filled the ride plate holes with waterweld. I cut the waterweld as needed and mixed in my fingers over and over until uniform. Tonight, I went back to sand the excess and noticed some of the holes were hard and some were hard but slighty flexible.
Did I do something wrong? Bad batch of waterweld?

I had that happen one time also. After the first ride the soft ones came off, so I just did them again. The next time they got hard and stayed.

Don't use rope to fill the boltholes around the bolthead.
Without you get better bonding and they won't come out again.
If u want them out in the future,just heat the epoxy a bit and you will get them out,no problem.

I did the same thing, no Rope. heat works, so just drilling a little hole in the epoxy and popping it out. Def put tape over the head of the bolt though.

If they were soft you did not mix the water weld correctly. Been there done that bro. No tape or rope in mine either.

Thanks for the info! I redid the ones that were a bit soft and now all are hard as they should be. Result was +.3 mph for me.

Anyone use this to fill in gaps where pump shaft is bolted at the front of the tunnel? There is some black semi-flexible stuff in there right now...but it is not flush.
