Cmon man!
That had to be ALOT of dry starts! Must've had the starter motor wired to the door chime on the front door of the dealership!
I don't doubt that running the impeller dry, repeated dry starts, etc will ruin an impeller and won't dispute those that won't crank the engine without having water flowing, but firing it up and letting it idle for a few seconds will not do that to an impeller with 3 hrs on it.

Okay now, need some sun and water or snow or something!
