    Ran into an issue when mounting my pump shoe, HELP!

    As you can see from the pictures, the shoe is a smaller diamter than the transom plate??? What do you guys reccomend I do here? I can add some material around the transom plate and make it a smooth transistion, but is there another way? Even If I lower the shoe down some so its flush on the bottom, It still protrudes into the tunnel on the edges. Also this is a new perfectly aligned transom plate. Any and all ideas/suggestions are appreciated. Has anyone ever run into this before??? Thanks as always.

    I suppose I could just seal it in, put on the pump extension on, and put a layer of epoxy over the entire section, and just work it down until it all lines up smooth??

    Also I have tried other shoes, and they all do the same thing.

    Mine is like that too. I put a bead of sealant in the small step and smoothed it.

    If you look at one of the last pics, there's a step, too.

    +1 you beat me to it cincygpr.

    That looks right to me. Are you refering to the part of the pump shoe that is open below the transom plate. If so that is normal and when you get a Pump Plug Kit, or make your own kit, that area will be filled in solid. Then you can use 3M 4200 / 5200 to seal it.

    you should have a nickel(.05 cents) gap between the bottom (sides of pump shoe) and 4' level comming off the hull. the area between the top back of the pump shoe and the transom should be filled when you installed the pump shoe it should have oozed through then wipe off..

    Are you the second owner of the ski or have you loosened or taken out the transom plate before as it looks to me it need to go up,by installing the pump plug kit and making your pump shoe sit lower you will only be creating another problem as you pump shoe will sit to low,if you do install a ppk once dry trim it flush and bolt your pump shoe hard up to the hull with a flexible sealant only

    I may be wrong but i believe your transom needs to go up not your pump shoe down just my 2 cents

    there will be a small gap when it's all set properly. your's does look on the big side tho. make sure the transom plate is touching all 3 locators and also check your shoe height. Duke has good pictures in his gallery.

    The transom plate was installed and aligned by InsandiegoJoe, for his son I might add, so I trust his work far above my own. So I'm 99% certain the transom plate is in the right spot. If this overlap somewhat normal, which after comparing the other 3 shoes, and 4 transom plates I have laying around it appears it is, as they all do this. This must be right, just bad engineering by Yamaha I guess. I'll get it worked out. Thanks guys!
