    Ride Plate/Shoe gaps....

    This is a uncut Riva plate the transition between the grate and plate is very abrubt...It seems it is supposed to angle up but it drops off about 1/4 inch then up. Seems to me if I grind the front mounts down a bit the transition will be eased a little. Worth the effort ?

    Also have pics of the shoe and grate. Should the gaps be filled with 3m 5200 ?

    Seal That Pump Shoe!!! The Extra Will Squish Out And Fill Those Gaps. The Transition U Speak Of Is Ok. From The Looks Of It, Its Not Bad. Seal That Shoe And Make Sure It Is Not Hanging Down

    Hi MR, get that shoe up in the hull more its hanging way to low, just done mine again and followed threads on here how to fill pump shoe,held in place lightly with bolts and left over night with a small trolly jack and a block of wood with enough preasure to hold firm but not to lift and cause hull damage,as the other said the sealant does ouze out and a good wipe clean before you leave it overnight, i have been told a shoe hanging that low will cause the grate to dig in hard and you will loose speed..
