Open chest containing hoseline flow control kit.
Remove one coupling half quick disconnect (MALE) (1).
Remove one grooved-to-internal thread coupling (2).
Wrap one layer of white teflon tape (3) on threads of each coupling half quick disconnect (MALE) (1).
Screw one coupling half (1) into a grooved-to-internal thread coupling (2). Coupling must be tight to
Slide pipe coupling clamp rubber gasket (4) over end of hoseline (5). Make certain gasket is flush with
e n d.
Place grooved adapter (2) in line with hoseline (5) and slide gasket (4) over joint. Center gasket in place.
Place lower pipe coupling clamp half (6) over gasket, then position upper pipe coupling clamp half (7).
install two bolts (8), and nuts (9) so that nuts (9) will be exposed on the upper coupling half (7).
Hand tighten nuts (9) evenly, then with wrench, tighten nuts evenly until coupling faces meet.
Continue tightening nuts evenly, until both bolts are secure.
Remove one plug (10) at suction port (11) of pump. Ensure that gasket is properly positioned in pump
Attach hoseline (5) to pump suction port (11).
Secure coupling (1) with pump coupling half cam-lock lever (12).
