    Help removing pump support/shoe

    Long story short, I need to shim my support due to carbon seal alignment issues vertically. I've cut around the support and removed as much of that other-worldly gasket they use. I can't use a come along attached to the pump bolts because they pull right out of the support. If I get some of that spray on gasket remover from an auto parts store will that dissolve it enough to get it loose? I attached the come along to the rear edge of the support and winched on it pretty good and it just won't budge. I've also used the heat gun extensively with no luck. I heated some of this stuff up by itself and its like the properties never change even though it's extremely hot. They could build a space shuttle with this stuff....

    here is an old "how to thread": http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=14749

    I had the same issue with my old 08 TX and ended up having to take it the dealer and we had to cut it out with a saws all. Had to buy a new shoe and start over......you may find that might be your only option....cause that shit ain't coming off easy!

    Yeah unfortunately that's the thread that gave me the idea to use the studs. When I pulled the first one out I thought oh great, I just really screwed something up... Then I saw they weren't build in to the support. I may end up having to cut it into a couple pieces and just chisel it off! Do they REALLY have to use that much damn gasket on these things? Does seadoo have a tool for removing this? 15 lb sledge?

    I have done a couple. It ruins it and I buy a new one to reinstall. I wrap a rope around the pump shoe and then around a big tree in the yard. I then pull the ski from the front toe hook and trailer with a vechicle. I do it slowly with little added pressure. I use a heat gun and razor blade also. It comes wright out. That black shit is fricking some sticky sh1t.... LOL.

    Jus need to bolt the alignment tool plate to the shoe, and run some 5/8" all-thread thru it.

    Its a thick plate, and pulls evenly to get the shoe off
