should there be any play on the impeller with the waterpump cover off? the previous owner painted every easily removable part and bracket blue on the quad i just purchased and i noticed some play in the impeller while taking cover off to removed the blue paint.. has no leaks and doesn't over heat.. ive heard that play is normal just wanted to make sure from someone who knows for sure.. thanks

Mine has a good bit of side to side play as well. So I guess I better order a rebuild kit. I've searched and searched and have seen that a few people say side play is normal too since the shaft is only support d by 1 bearing

That is normal. If it's not leaking I would not stress it. It is so rare that the shaft or bearings to the Water pump wear out. Usually they only wear out when people run only water in them and not the proper coolant because they rust and wear the seal out them the seal leaks.
