Re: Can you run your engine without a water intake

The raw water impellor will self destruct within minutes if run dry, as most of us have learned the hard way, and the pieces clog the heat exchanger. If you remove it you could probably run for a few minutes but as Rob said, you wouldn't be doing it a favor.
