95f250txstroker- I would be looking at why the belt broke. Also check the belt tensioner. If the belt is slipping the water pump will not turn. If everything checks out ok I would look into that water pump. Did you use a good quality part? I have seen cheaper mfg's skimp on things like impeller thickness and important things like stamping the blade on.

the coolant and radiator are staying cold but the motor is getting hot, but it pressures up. ive been told it could be a head gasket but im not losing water nor do i have water in the oil or vice versa. i dunno much about diesels but im trying to learn. ive read through this forum and from what i read, if it was a head gasket, it would be circulating but have bubbles in the resivor. is this true or false? or could it be the head gasket?

yes replaced the tstat and even pulled it out and still the same thing. oh and the belt broke from age and wear. it was the original belt.. what could be blocked though? when we had the water pump off we ran water through the block. so i dont think its the block? but i could be wrong???

Make sure you have the belt routed correctly. I don't know if its possible but if your spinning the water pump the wrong way that could cause an overheat. Other than that it has to be a blockage somewhere but I've never seen a 7.3L have a coolant blockage.
