    Sealed Pump Shoe Removal

    It looks like my sealed pump shoe is a little lower then I want it to be and crooked This is without a doubt why I'm not at the speed I should be. I was looking for 5200 removers and found this one http://marineformula.com/. Anyone else have anything else they use besides a big a torch to heat this stuff off????

    Try using MEK it should turn to jelly, then just remove it with a plastic scraper.

    I found the easiest way was to use a sharp putty knife and scrape the majority of it off. Breaking the pump shoe loose was the hardest part, I used a 2x4 and leverage.

    same here, i used a torch on the shoe to warm up the 5200 and then i used a piece of wood to help get it down.

    i used a plastic razorblade to scrape the 5200 off

    When you say lower than it should be...as long as its recessed its ok. I think the nickel thing is a little over rated. Biggest thing is not to have it hanging to low.

    I agree. When I look at it you can tell its slightly crooked with the plate on.

    Well, i could tell you this. When i used 5200 to seal the fuel pump ring for the gas tank conversion, all of the 5200 came off. I would say regular gas will also do the job.

    Dont use the plate as a reference, use the hull

    take a 2' level and use the hull as a reference, then check left side shoe front and back, then right side front and back (I use different sized washers to measure between the shoe and the level)

    if the shoe is pretty straight in the hull, then use the shoe to adjust the plate square side to side

    Thanks for that info. I'll check it out when I get home tomorrow from work.
