You can remove the circ pump and then remove the back cover to inspect it. The impeller is metal so, I doubt there is anything wrong with it.

Why aren't they all made of metal/stainless steel?

Ditto.

I would be more worried about getting the
various coolers ( fuel, p/s, oil)and the ex manifolds cleaned
out good.
