Raw Water Pump Orientation...

Hi all! I've looked everywhere, but I cant find any info on the correct orientation of my new Sherwood G7b water pump">raw water pump. There is no inlet nor outlet marked on the pump, the directions or the mechanical drawings. I'm taking this to mean that the pump can spin either way, as long as the impeller has been installed correctly. Am I even close to right? Thanks, Chris

Yes; it’s a symmetrical impeller, so Inlet/Outlet porting will depend upon direction of rotation.
