If you run water thru the pump, there is NO PROBLEM running it out of water.
I read much on this; many say never do it, BUT, flytime told me he checked with Berkeley directly, then I emailed Berkeley and got a quick reply that it is NO PROBLEM if running water in the pump.
In fact, the Berkeley guy said run a hose up the nozzle; but it's better to disconnect the inside hose and run it directly into the pump (connecting another hose to run thru the engine to cool).
I used flytime's idea: put a hose splitter on the hose; one hose from splitter has male connector, the other has female; connect to interior hoses; turn pump water on before turning engine; turn engine water on after engine starts.

It all looks good except I don't see your garden hose reel in there, be carefull brother your pump is going to suck up the garden hose when you put the boat in the water...

Can run all day like that; yours looks just like flytime's; I have longer hose after splitter; the splitter sits on the swim step so I can turn on/off easier than reaching down in.

Jethro gave it to me, I think four years ago?  The name on the card is Jerry Durham.
Berkeley had some pretty interesting options,  a Jet Bailer that hooked up to the water inlet.  It has a manifold that has 2 lines going down into the bilge to bail the water out.  They also had a fire hose hook-up that inserted into the nozzle so you could attach a hose, 400 gpm at 2800 rpms!
Once hooked up, the boat won't move but it would squirt one hell of a lot of water!

Dammit man! Jethro had let me borrow that manual and a couple of others he had about five years ago. I had mentioned how I wished I could score some of my own and he told me to give 'em back...And he gave them to you! Wait 'til I see him tonight!!!

Thanks for the scans. The tech. drawing may come in handy some day!

Sorry for delayed reply, I have been meaning to reply to this for some time and now that I am going through some of my bowl drawings and notes; here goes.

The typical suction bolt circle has a diameter of 10.250" with a nominal register diameter of 9.125".

The large Dominator bolt circle diameter is 10.500" and can have a nominal register diameter of 9.375" and is intended for impeller sizes AAA and larger.  The largest impeller I have seen is a 5A.  Larger than that and the trailing edges of the vanes start to hit the bowl vanes.

Cheers,

Joe
