    PPK install before Pump tunnel reinforcement install?

    Hi,

    I have not received my pump tunnel reinforcement kit yet, but I have received the pump plug kit. I have received the prefab pump tunnel install thread in the how to, and it it look as though it has you install the pump plug kit and glue it up before doing the install, but then it shows you removing the bolts to the shoe? Is it ok to install my pump plug kit and glue it all up and bolt it down before doing the pump tunnel kit? I don't want to have to remove anything that I already glued, but i guess if it is just bolts, that is no big deal.

    Thanks.

    I've done it both ways. I think its best to go ahead and seal the pump shoe first and bolt it up into the factory location. Just make sure to push the shoe back toward the rear as far as it will go.

    Then you can reinforce the tunnel the tunnel later. When you remove the bolts the shoe will be glued in place it will not move.

    When you say push it back, how can it be pushed back when there are bolts holding it in place? Is there play in it?

    Thanks.

    Sometimes there is a little play. Just make sure to push it back and also file the pump plugs flush so the shoe doesn't hang down any.
