Water Pump Flow Rate Volvo MD11C ??

We would like to know what the expected flow rate should be for an older model MD11C Volvo diesel. Raw water cooled. We have estimated that it is currently at 2-2.5 gallons / 5 minute interval while idling. The thought here is that if our flow rates are too low then we must have some obstruction down stream from pump. We believe we have ruled out most other possibilities. We were hoping to be able to rule out the impeller assuming our flow rates were in line with expectations.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!!
