    Is it the weight difference, that makes you want the Berk housing? The Dominator suction is a nice piece, with extra rib I guess it would a little task to re-rigg for a different brand suction.

    Ya I posted that because its what i have now. CS said the same thing. I"ve cracked two Berks so I better go with the stronger one. So, anyone got a late-model dominator suction housing? i'll make a new set of TA plates and upgrade to that one.

    The aluminum around the bearing cavity is trying to tear off the suction housing, it happens to every single race boat running a berkeley housing over time if they are running any kind of significant horsepower. Get a dominator and find something else to worry about, thats what I did anyways.

    Hey Chris, How often do you recommend rebuilding a pump to check for such things?

    That sux but atleast it broke outside the boat. The few I've seen haven't been that fortunate.
