How can you tell it's not pumping water?
Is it overheating?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

There is no water flowing from the outlet pipe.

I have replaced the impeller and the thermostat and cleaned out old debris from the channels. I expected the cooling water to flow steadily from the outlet but no joy.

The motor performs well though and does not seem to be overheating ?

As long as the tube from the water pump to the powerhead is seated and sealed there's nothing wrong.
As long as it's not overheating the cooling water is going out the exhaust.
