Check the new pump gears. There are a raft of bad rebuild kits on the market and I hear this story a lot. First thing I do when I get a new kit is measure the face width of the pump gears.

The narrow gears should measure .561/.562 and the wider gears should be .724/.725.

The gears in the defective kits are about .010 undersize and will bypass badly giving exactly the results you have.
