    Pump shoe height.. not a nickle..its .45 cents!

    I reinstalled my pump shoe last night to get a baseline. Its slid all the way back and doing measurements with ski level and no intake grate on.



    I have used a 3ft and 4ft straightedge levels, flipped over to check for warpage (none) I have used jack with boards as spacing or an antifreeze bottle on side. I have tried it from level at base of keel, back to just before the curve into intake and always the same .170-.180 gap to the shoe.

    Only thing consistent in my measuring, is that i always line up straightedge on keel.

    I was told .072 (a nickle) was stock, but I am getting .180 gap. Am I measuring wrong or whats going on ?

    thanks for help....

    Here are some photos of setup to measure.

    also use a floor jack till your sealant cures. keeps the expanding 5200, or what not from pushing you shoe out of spec.
