if you have a good supply of oil and stuff, its not jus gonna explode and
go out, like a rod.  it will jus get gradually worse, burn more oil, and
cost more money on the rebuild.  Chances are now, your impeller and
turbine are reusable.  Keep it up for a little longer, your impeller will
be trash, and a little after that the turbine will be garbage too..
