    Question Q? about bowl seal!

    Do I have this seal in the right way? The Berkeley instructions confused the hell out of me for some reason. Thanks in advance.

    No, it goes the other way. you want the sealing side toward the impellor.

    DITTO, your trying to holding the water out of the cavity. Just reverse that seal and you will be set.

    Another option. If the water you run in doesn't have much sand in it, you can get rid of that seal altogether, remove the bowl plug (the thing on the backside that looks like a big flathead screw) and let the glacier bearing water lubricate. That's how my pump was set up this last time and I had absolutely no problems with that setup.

    with berk style bushings, there's no way i'd do that they're made to be lubed, unlike dominator style./

    You had your Berk just up like a dominator bowl?

    The Dominator bushings are a bit different, but will do the job for water lube.

    Thank you everyone. I have turned it around, but now it is very difficult to get the shaft through the seal without making the spring pop out or otherwise mess up the seal. Is there a trick to making it go together easily with the seal turned this way? Thanks again.

    Hawaiian put alittle of grease around the seal and on the shaft. Make sure that your going on strait on to the shaft and not at angle or it will be difficult. Good luck

    Sometimes you'll have just a little splatter or a burr around the end of the shaft. I find that taking a little emry cloth and hitting it lightly just till it's nice n smooth, then a smidge of grease will make it slide right in.

    That sounded perverse.
