Truck was getting hot, so we swapped in new, OEM stats and now we have no flow in the cooling system. No heat at the vents and PS of radiator is cold while DS is too hot to hold your hand on. Heater hoses are not warm.

I figure that if there was something special needed to bleed the system, there would be lots of posts about it, but I have found nothing but the fuel cooling system procedures.

Now I'm wondering if the water pump is just not pumping even though it's not leaking. There was heat before we changed stats, but nothing now.

that looks like it ground into the Case really bad.

if there is any bubbling there, you might be headed into Cavitation Country.
