When you think the water coming out the boiler could be something around 80C it would get hot.

If everything is working ok I wouldn't worry about it.

Again if it's getting on a bit, buy a spare, and keep it for when /if you need it.

The pump is cooled by the pumped water!

The body is uaually about 10 degrees above the water temperature.

If its excessively hot then thats a sign that its stalled and not pumping.

Read the FAQs about pump valves as these need to work to change a pump easily without draining the whole system.
