anyone have any experience with Berkely irrigation pumps?

we have one with a kawasaki 8hp motor. motor works fine. pump primes (protek #4 hand primer) (cheap s.o. who doesn't have to use it...yeah) any rate...if i take the outlet tube off the pump primes and water gushes forth. i feel like moses striking a rock. however that doesn't get water from the pond to the veggiez. if i put the outlet pipe on, it doesnot prime.

Take outlet pipe off drain all water out so pump push air out freely make a check that there no kinks in pipe 2 are 3 psi backpressure will stop prime.
