I thought I would run the engine yesterday for the first time in a couple of months, a few minutes later the overheating alarm went off.
There was water at the outlet from the water strainer, so I took the pump off then it's back. When the shaft was turned the impeller didn’t, the bonding between the rubber impeller and the metal centre had failed and it was easy to separate the two.
