Sad Went out with raw water seacock shut. Alarm went off after 10 minutes. Did not know what it was but shut down after about 15 seconds. After cooling and opening seacock I ran for some miles before it overheated again. Found out later impeller had been damaged. Replaced and runs fine but am suspicious that I may have done more harm. What would be the next thing damaged I wonder? Could it be rings as sometimes I smell burnt oil I think.Am wondering if I should replace rings. Seems a tad more smoke than before.

Went out yesterday and there was a little blue smoke at 2200 rpm. Still think rings.
