    Default Filler for blending the bottom to the intake

    What do I use to fill screw holes, blend the loader for smoother water flow?

    Are we talking the bond between intake casting and hull ? if so Seagoing 'poxy putty is what we use , there are other products out there like Marine Tex

    There are some cracks in what I have. Near fasteners. I'm thinking it may be leaking there. Looks like a pia to remove?

    sea goin epoxy..... important, check the mfg. dates on the cans, use nothing over 90 days old. Top quality preparation is crucial.

    Level out the boat put enough water in the bilge to surround the intake casting and watch is if the water leaks are significant at all , If theres constant leak/drip your likely destined to remove the intake and reseal it as the bond between the hull and casting is separated (primetime to pull it and machine it for a shoe too) , if its very minor or fastener related you might get by with a bit of grinding and patching however if there is any oil present leaching thru the cracks your likely wasting time call if you need help removal looks formidable but is actually relatively simple , clean up of the casting and hull prior to reset is the real grunt work

    curious why you would like to reset it, what do you hope to gain? Didn't you just have the motor mounts set up for your re-power?

    I had thought there was an alignment issue but there's not, there is an issue with the "lining up" of the intake and front of the pump
