    2019 FX transom reseal

    Transom itself was easier to take off however the silicone is very difficult. I donít see how it wonít come off without using aggressive mechanical options like a wire wheel or a sanding pad. What Iíve tried is acetone, alcohol, scuff pad, and a lightly abrasive Dremel bit. What are you guys using to takeoff the silicone and how aggressive are you?

    I feel like thereís still some residue and might not see you as well as it needs to be. Attached are some pics maybe what Iíve done is good enough?

    On a sidenote I noticed that there are some small bubbles or blisters located at the top corner where it returns back towards the ski on the transit I have attached a few pics.

    Also does anybody have a torque specs for the Transom itself and the wear ring housing? Thank you all.

    Last pic is to show Paint that pulled off when the Transom came off. And the first pic shows the tiny bubbles at the top part of the pic

    That transom looks like it was sealed correctly.They use to leave a huge gap in the old skis but that hasnt been the case for a bit.That stuff is a nightmare to get off completely and if you just apply sealant over any of the old stuff the seal will be worse than before you messed with it.I usually just sand it all off with a DA to make sure the new stuff adheres to the nano but thats just me.If there is a better way get it off %100 I havent found it

    Ok will do. I appreciate your help. Do you happen to know the torque specs for the Transom, wear ring, and pump?

    Transom plate nut could be 19.2 ft-lbs
    Jet pump unit assy & impeller duct bolts 29.5 ft-lbs
    Above based on the same fiche parts back in 2012

    For silicone adhesive removal (if that is what that is) I have had some luck with silicone lube from a spray can onto a terry cloth rag. Not silicone spray that dries quickly, rather silicone lube which is oily - not drying, like the feeling of WD40.
    Just keep the rag wet with the lube, while rubbing in circle motions. Takes about 5 minutes, but you should start seeing bits start magically rubbing away.
    My guess, is that silicone lube acts like a bit of a solvent to cured silicone.
    Try a small area 1st to test compatibility with the paint/hull.

    DanSvho, make sure u fill the voids in the transom with epoxy or resin before you reinstall. It makes for a much better seal
