Couple questions:

-Are your pumps mounted "upside down" to the underside of the table top?
-Do you have any priming issues with them not being much lower than the kettle drains?
-Any priming or pumping issues having the plate chiller at the same height as the pumps?

Yes

-Do you have any priming issues with them not being much lower than the kettle drains?

not really, but im probably going to install a T and a valve right after the pump, make priming easier.

-Any priming or pumping issues having the plate chiller at the same height as the pumps?

the chiller plate is AFTER the pump, so that does not make a difference as far as priming goes.

The only issue ive had as far as priming goes is once it goes to a boil i have to close the valve after pump about 60% or it looses prime.

I also loose prime when I run the pump while I dump the grain in when I start mashing. Next time im gonna try turning the pump off when I do that.
