Not too sure I bought it with no water pump on the engine but it was on the passenger seat and was obvious the bearing had gone so replaced it with a new one ran it up to temp and checked dip stick and low and behold water in the oil
The engine only has 72,000 miles on the clock so really low compared to most, can only assume old pump failed and threw belt which overheated the motor
