  • INSTALLATION & OPERATION

    1. Mount the Power Primer securely to a plate on the engine or centrifugal pump.
      • Primer should be high enough to allow water to drain back into pump suction line.
      • Position the unit to provide easy access to lubricators, filters and mufflers.
    2. Install oil reservoir, vacuum gauge, filter jar and muffler. See vacuum pump manual, included.
    3. Fill oil reservoir with quality SAE 10 or 10W-30 motor oil.
    4. Install hand valve between the power primer and the volute of the pump.
    5. To start priming, open priming line valve and turn primer on.
    6. Watch for water to appear in water trap. Then turn pump OFF and CLOSE priming line.
  • MAINTENANCE

    • Vacuum Pump requires occasional flushing. Remove pressure gauge and run 1/4 cup of flushing solvent (Gast AH 225 or equivalent) through pump.
    • Brief warm-up may be required for pump to produce a vacuum.
    • Perform initial inspection after 500 hours.
    • Use engine oil with viscosity of SAE10 when refilling oiler.
    • Clean or replace air filters as needed.
    • Keep water trap clear of debris.
    • Replace parts that show evidence of dryness or cracks, esp. for parts such as cork gaskets and rubber gaskets for the oiler.
  • SAFETY & RECOMMENDATIONS

    • Make sure that electrical connection is grounded.
    • Do not operate primer without drive guard.
