Re: How to destroy a diesel in one easy step...

I'm guessing you speak from experience. If I wasn't getting water flow I would change it again, but I'll start the motor.....verify water is flowing heavily out the exhaust and moving through the clear tube after my impeller. The old crappy one moves it just fine....the new one jams or doesn't quite fit in right even though it looks the same and was the part # according to the engine so I put the old one back in. When the engine has overheated (4x since I've owned) it shuts down on it's own...but I've run this baby for stretches of 40 + hrs straight. During those 4 shut downs what kind of damage are we talking? All 4x it started back up within 30 min no problem and the problem every time was clogged mixing elbow.
