    Stripped brass inserts inpump shoe how do I fix?

    Ok, I was getting ready to install my R&D girdle and discovered that the two brass inserts just spin in the pump shoe, I figured the only way to get it out is to pull hard. Once I get them out though, what can I do to reinstall them and know their staying? I did a search here but found nothing conclusive.
    Thanks

    I put mine back in with 5200. I let them set 24 hours before I put the bolts back in to ensure they had set. Make sure you put something under them to prevent them from oozing out as it sets. They make a fast set 5200 but I wasnt in a rush.

    5200 to hold those in?? I understand epoxy but 5200 is more of a sealant then a type of epoxy or glue to hold inserts in I'm surprised that holds up in that much pressure

    Then what would you, suggest? JB Weld? A different Epoxy? Oh and who makes 5200?

    IMO... your best bet (other than to install a new pump shoe), is to grind down the shoe insert bosses, install an X ride plate along with a speek freeks pump shoe protector.

    I have a Riva X model grate, but the reason I started this was I have a R&D girdle and a Speed Freeks pump shoe protector. Wouldnt I be ok using those after epoxyig in the inserts? What is the equivelant of the 3M?

    I'm lost here... you have a riva X model intake grate on a ski that has brass inserts in the pump shoe

    Only the 215's had brass inserts in the pump shoe, and an X grate will not fit on a 215

    No, No, I have a extra Riva intake grate off of my RXPX, but I'm actually working on my 215 RXP, its the one with the stripped out brass inserts. I have a R&D girdle that I'm installing with a Speed freeks shoe protecter. My problem is I need a good epoxy now, to glue those inserts back in, so I can go play. I was looking for alternatives if I cant find 3M 5200.
    Thanks,
    Mike
