So the guy who drives drunk all the time and hasn't killed anyone yet proves that drinking and driving isn't a bad thing? I know that's overstating things, but that's the logic you're using. Everything works, until it doesn't. You're way past the useful life of that impeller. It'll be fine till it isn't. Then when your engine overheats, I hope you're watching your temp gauge and shut it down before it does major damage. Ask yourself if a thirty dollar part and a few minutes are worth the risk to your engine.
Bumping is iffy, dry starting is a mistake, imo. But we're all allowed to make our own mistakes.
