    Replacement for Felt Strip?

    Is there anything that I can use instead of the felt packing that goes on the pump shoe? The strip was not on the pump shoe when I took it off and it would take until Wednesday to get a new one. Then I have to wait a week for the 5200 to cure. By then, I wouldn't have much summer left.

    Yeah, that was my plan. I used the same method that USCME used here (using US Composites resin - already cured and ready to be installed).

    Now when I'm reinstalling, is that felt strip necessary, or can I just put some extra 5200 where that strip would go? Like this pic from cajundude just with the felt strip missing (and a bit more 5200 to fill the space the felt would usually be).

    I used some weather stripping from the hardware store, and then sealed it with silicone or your preference. 5200 fast cure is a 24hr curing time. The weather stripping comes in all shapes and sizes...and it worked for me.

    no strip, add enough 5200 on that area, bolt it up, keep cleaning the excess and fill in the back solid like in the pic I provided...
