    Default Dominator bowl ?'s

    I read quite a while ago on HotBoat that the older Dominator pumps used two different bowls, basically a good version and a crappy version. Any guess as to which I have in the pic?

    What you have is the old bowl. No problem, it can be opened up easily and will work fine.

    Nothing wrong with a Dom bowl

    I removed a droop snoot and am replacing it with a Rooster Booster. The Rooster Booster has a "lip" on it where it bolts to the bowl. That lip prevents it from seating on the Dominator bowl correctly. Comparing the size of the lip to the bowl's output it's pretty easy to tell that a Berkeley bowl has a larger opening at the bowl's output than my Dominator does. I went down to the local jet boat shop in search of a flat spacer to mate the Dominator bowl with the Rooster Booster but he didn't have any, all he had were wedges. He suggested I remove the lip from the Rooster Booster with a grinder.

    I'm wondering if I remove that lip will I wish I hadn't removed it when I have the bowl opened up?

    The way I would do it is to have a thin flat Al spacer/adpater made, flat on the bowl side, cut to accommodate the booster on the other. By mounting the booster that way you won't destroy the unit and if sometime in the future you want to sell it you can getting full market price. Someone may already be making an adapter like that for all I know: You might call Duane at Hi-Tech Performance or Jack at MPD and ask either of them, they would know.
