Have you already got the old motor out Mark, or is this before you have tackled that?

If you want help identifying whether the pump may be at fault, I think it is going to help the helpers by telling them symptoms and any resulting damage or what happened to lead you to think the engine needed changing?

Kind of sounds like you need to go ahead and change out the engine. Usually when the water pump impeller doesn't turn it means the oil pump shaft is broken or became disconnected at the rear of the engine. The main oil pump is in the front of the engine and it drives the waterpump off the front of it. There is a shaft that runs to the rear of the engine that runs the oil pump....Could also be the shaft is messed up where it connects to the waterpump but it would still require the cases to be split I think....

retiredintime is on the right track. You might be able to fix her with head gaskets and a new water pump. LOL!

Pull the front casing off and see if the slot on the water pump is gone/cracked split if it is then the pump won't turn and there's your problem; if it in tact try to turn the shaft that the slot fits on to if it turns then shaft is broken in the case someplace ..new engine or rebuild.
