Unhappy water pump problems

We have a 99 powerstroke diesel in which we have gone through approx 6 water pumps in 14 months. we are getting about 12,000 - 15,000 miles in between repairs. We have changed the fan, belts, pully on water pump and belt tensioner. Anyone know of any issue's with Ford water pumps. The truck a 1999 F-250 4 wheel drive has 323,000 miles. We checked the run out on the last pulley mount and the new one and they both read .002" runout. Is this normal.

What part is failing? Are you losing the bearing or the seal? Is the aluminum pitted? Are you adding additive into the coolant. Ford recommends 4 bottles of thier fw-16, when you change the coolant or water pump. You could be having electrolysis problems, if that is it the water pump is going to be the least of your worries.

Shaft seal is failing. Aluminum is not pitted. We did not use the additive.

I would try installing one more pump, flush the cooling system, Install new antifreeze and the coolant additive

just reading over this problem ,just curious if you are using aftermarket or ford pumps , are you getting them from the same place ,i have seen more than once not necesarily water pumps ,but other components where a parts store got a shipment of bad parts ,just put four clutches in a f450 until finally got one where the pressure plate fingers werent warped ,and causing clutch drag , just a thought
