    Pump Shoe Sealing

    Anyone every have the problem with the PPKs sticking to the hull instead of in the pump shoe? Mine are now stuck to the damn hull and won't come off unless I rip them off.

    Anyways I guess I have two options.

    Buy a new PPK

    or

    Do some custom work of some sort and fill the damn thing

    Thoughts?

    Why not just use a blade to get them off of the hull?

    If you dont wanna do that, you can do a DIY...
    On my dad's FX, I used The Right Stuff (or maybe good stuff? its the foam stuff) to fill the voids. Trim it a bit below the top of the void, and seal on top with 5/4200.

    Ive had that happen... Use an exacto knife around the base of them and then grab them with channel locks...

    Maybe get some thin wire under the stuck plugs and pull it tight to separate the plug from the hull? It may be easier than using a blade, with less chance of damaging the plug or hull...
