    Sounds like your insert is spinning. You will need to get someone to hold the top with some vice grips while you get it out. 3m 5200 will reseal it once you get the bolt out.

    I would almost bet that he is talking about the pump shoe insert spinning since he said he is putting a PPK in.

    The quick fix is to hold the insert with a pair of vise grips and 5200 it back in when reinstalling the shoe. If you have the time, just go ahead and order the updated brackets from the 05 and up GPR so you will never have this problem again.

    I would highly reccomend installing the new style brackets to keep the shoe from eventually getting ripped off the boat. Not enough surface area on those small inserts.
