"I was cleaning the raw water strainer on my 29 h Yanmar, forgot to open the valve and started the engine, ran it for about 3-5 minutes and realized what I did! Opened it and everything seems OK. What damge could have been done that is not apparent right now.
Can any on help?"

"Howdy George, well if your high temp alarm didn't go off,thats good...But I would say definately open up your raw water pump and carefully examine it-the impellar might be damaged. I would replace it just for safety sake since you are into it."
