Default changed water pump

I just finished changing my water pump this weekend since the weather allowed it. Are you sure your pump is working? Mine had the same symptoms before I changed mine, cold antifreeze, rad cap could be removed, etc. I changed my tstat, cross over/bypass hose, rad cap. I have a 5.9 L gas and refilled with just under 2 gallons of antifreeze/water 50/50 mix. Stupid question, along with the belt question, when you put the fan blade back on? (front toward the front and not reversed?), you installed it correctly? Did you use too much RTV sealant and it leaked into the pump? just some thoughts. good luck.
