How do you know it is overheating? How full are you filling the radiator? It should be just over the tubes, not clear to the top.
Some say not having a thermostat will cause it to overheat.
Hot tight is the fan belt? Mine was loose last year and it would overheat.
what I am getting at is do not assume it is the water pump until you have ruled out all of the easy stuff first. If the water pump is not leaking and it is not loose on the bearing, chances are there is nothing wrong with it. Loosen the belt and check the pump for shaft wobble.
