Broken water pump on brand new engine?

So I've been trying to find out why this $9400 motor has been over heating on the highway. I changed the thermostat, flushed the brand new radiator and replaced the fan clutch that the fan ate.

I found out that it was the water pump because I didn't see the EGR cooler return line flowing. So I did something brave while the engine was running and took the top radiator hose off while it was 200 deg. I first squeezed the hose to see if it was tight. No flow, not a drop. What gives?

I've been out of work for a month trying to get this dam truck rolling and all I have is a black cloud over my head. First the engine was set down on the oil pan, cracking it right were the plug is then the fan clutch wiring harness gets caught by the fan now this.

Does this sound like the water pump is out? And how? Also every time I went on the highway it does this.

Bump. Most likely the water pump is what I would think.

Ok enough with the 6.0 bashing. It was the water pump. The plastic impeler was broken. I'm trying right now to get a new one from Ford through a dealer. This motor runs like a top when it's not running hot. Simple 30 min fix.

I got the water pump. Had to pay for it now and will get reimbursed from Ford, what is writen on the stering wheel that is "Oval"

The good thing about my warranty is that I can repair it if I want and get reimbursed, besides labor of course. But I don't have to wait on a Ford dealership to fix something so simple. If I don't feel like messing with it I just bring it to Ford and let them fix it.
