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.

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

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'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
