    Normal if you haven't changed your impeller in a long time and looks like you run shallow alot.

    That or crank it a bunch without the hose on it. Put a kit in it and ride on!

    Ok so the melted case is ok.. Yes have a full kit I'll be putting in today. Wow that was really easy.. I was expecting changing the impeller and pulling everything to be harder/tricky????.....

    No melted case is not normal, or okay, do you start the motor without putting a hose on it? I see people do that all the time. It only takes a few seconds of running dry to overheat that little plastic pump.

    You can also heat it up running shallow or in the mud.
