Put the impeller back in next spring.
Everything else looks good.
^^ +1 - but sell the fake a lake to Malibu owner .. and make one of these...attach to raw water intake...you get a constant visual on fluid - antifreeze level... $10 bucks.. watch this video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHR9bbPbwmM - Can'tRepeat made the video.. the bucket is $10. The tube of plastic epoxy(polyester resin) was more than the bucket and PVC fitting.

Definitely pull the impeller if new... and spray some 303 on it and put it in a plastic bag to keep it in good shape for next season. I wet block with RV -50 antifreeze so I leave old impeller in. New impeller and gasket in packaging along with new gasket. I like the corrosion inhibitors to keep the inside of the exhaust manifolds, risers and block from oxidizing more...
