You sure can :-D

Get yourself a new shaft seal assembly (SP 1500 - ?) and rip that puppy apart and reorient the discharge (you might even not have to take the impeller off to do it, but I think you'll have to).

I'm out tomorrow because of a job interview in Maine so won't be back on the board until Sunday pm or Monday.
