    PPK installation difficulty?

    OK so Ill be getting a PPK soon and am a little bit paranoid about the problems and difficulties of the installation.
    1.Do 04 GPRs come with the updated hull inserts?
    2.Will the pump shoe hang low if it doesnt without the PPK?
    3.Will I need to seal the shoe with sealant after installation, and if so what kind of sealant?
    4.Does the pump shoe recall from yamaha apply to shoes on 04 GPRs?
    5.How do I get he sealant off from when the shoe was first installed?

    THanx, thats all I can think of for now, but I like to know everything before I do anything on the ski so that I dont mess anything up and have to redo it.

    1) The 04s are good to go
    2) The kit shouldnt effect the height of the shoe. Trim all the pieces FLUSH before installation.
    3) Yes you seal the shoe. Some dab RTV silicone on the rubber inserts to hold them into place. Most use 5200 fast cure to seal the shoe. 4200 fast cure is easier to work with IMO
    4) No-only 03s
    5) Scraper and elbow grease

    In the document, Fercho has removed the transom plate. It is not necessary to do unless yours is not aligned. Check the 3 alignment tabs on the back of the hull where the transom plate bolts up. The plate should be flush against the tabs.
    Very important-the first pics are of the front side of the transom plate. There are two kinda triangle shaped voids towards the bottom. For some reason, the PPK does not come with pieces to fill these voids. After you remove the shoe and prep the surface, crawl under the boat and fill these with your 5200/4200 fast cure, then seal the rest and install.

    Have plenty of Acetone or Denatured alcohol, paper towels, and rubber gloves (optional but recommended)
    Install the shoe and work the edges like your caulking a bathtub.

    Do you mean do it now, or after the new pump? Will I need to remove the shoe when changing the pump? Finally...what could I combine the installation of the PPK with so that when I go in I can get more stuff done?
