I've had this pump running now (Used) for 2.5 Years. For the first 1.5 years I didn't oil it but now every 3 to 6 months have oiled with a 3 in one SAE 20 weight oil. For the past week or so I've started to smell what seems to be burning oil is this normal? The pump sounds fine always quiet just has this strong oil smell it does run extremely hot due to load?

Can anyone tell me if this is a bad sign? Is my motor burning up or wouldn't the thermal protection kick in and shut it down?

How hot is extremely hot? Can you throw it on a killawatt meter to see if it is pulling the watts it should?
