    I have a 78 condor sprint. My dad had the pump rebuilt probably 10 years ago. It has only been on the water maybe 3 seasons. Short seasons @ that. Any idea what berkley pump it could be or what maintenance will be due. Our big block probably had 300 plus horse power and turned like 5200 rpm. Can any information be derived from that. The boat is about 1200 mi. Away right now. SUX!! Any way the motor is being rebuilt. It will have approx. 500 hp. Opinions and thought would be appreciated.

    h, i am no pro, but I have done a bit of research on impellers after I shattered mine. I have been told anything over 450hp go stainless, or bronze. There are rpm/hp charts you can look at for your self to see what impeller is best for you. You can tell by looking at the impeller through hand hole, or from the bottom of the intake what material it is. If its army green, its aluminum, SS, and bronze should show there colors. As for size, I think you can measure the outside diameter, and diameter of the back/ trailing edge of the impeller. Also, some impellers I guess have the size stamped on it. I don't know if all do. Those measurements are on a chart too. Pumps are kind of basic. You are going to need to get the bowl off to tell what it is, unless some one has tagged it, or you have info from where it was done last, they might know. I know some one here will be able to give you some specs, and be of more help. Again, I AM NO PRO, and have only removed, replaced, and worked on my own. You might want to hit up your local shop.


    Good luck!

    Who rebuilt it 10 years ago?

    A picture says a thousand words lets see some and maybe we can identify your pump

    cheap maintence is to always keep the intake (hole in bottom of boat) covered when trailering the boat so rocks and sand and things do not get stuck in the pump.

    Keep fresh grease in the main bearing and oil in the tail bearings

    Keep it out of the sand on the beach!

    The Place that rebuilt went out of buisness years ago. I was only 19 or 20, so I don't remember much. My dad has since had a stroke so he does not remember. I believe I remember seeing some hi-tech stickers. The boat is along was away from me now. I will probably not retrieve it until early spring. Thx for the help!
