are we speaking of the fan clutch? If so you probably have the wrong pump. double check the application. or are you speaking of the impeller? The answer would also be you have incorrect water pump or your old one was incorrect. doubtful

Thank you for your reaction. The castinnumber i send you is the engine casting, witch was for the 6.2 and 6.5 diesel. So mine is the newer type 6.2 and has a multibelt. As far as i can do my resurch, my pump fits for a 6.3 and a 6.5 and he turns counter clockwise. The pump that was send to me is for the older type 6.2 and turns clockwise. I orded a new one and this time for a 6.5, so i hope thets the good one. Greets Michel for the Netherlands
