Yanmar diesel ran without water cooling

My 1975 Tanzer 26 has a Yanmar YSE 8 which was run about 1 hour without the water intake being connected in June 2009. The water impeller was replaced as was the burnt out exhaust pipe. The engine appears to run well except a small leak from the water pump. Should I be concerned about other damage to the engine? Should it be disassembled? What damage should we look for?
