Two things to check. First, are you sure that you reinstalled the belt correctly? If it isn't routed correctly, it can turn the pump backward, and it will NOT pump correctly. Second, did you "burp" all the air out of the system when you refilled it? These things are notoriously hard to get all the air purged out of the system. The air pockets will hit the pump, and the pump will stop pumping, as its not designed to pump air. To get the air out, you can either open a hose connection at a high point in the system, or squeeze the upper radiator hose until you stop getting bubbles in the filler neck. Just do a search; there are tons of threads on here on the subject.
