Merc hp165 Stern Drive Sea Pump Impeller

Greetings!
I have a runabout that has been having overheating issues. I replaced the sea pump impeller, which came in a kit with a new housing, seals, etc. The repair went well, but when I took it out, it was still having overheating issues at 3/4 - full power. When I pulled the old impeller, it was fairly new, but some of the fins were facing the wrong direction and it looked all snafu'd. I'm getting the sinking suspicion that perhaps I put it in with the fins facing the wrong direction. Could this be the problem causing the overheating? I'm new to this, and any advice is appreciated!
