What doesn't make sense to me is when a thermostat goes they usually go open so your truck doesn't over heat. And if it's stuck closed it wouldn't blow your water pump because when your truck is cooled even if your romping on it it'll still pump the same amount as if it's warmed up and open.

it was a short block that was put in, so things like the water pump etc were reused off the old motor.

For the two times i have had thermostat failure, the thing stuck closed. Also it pumps less water when its closed because its not pumping anything from the radiator, the primary source of heat transfer in the truck. It could also have been the pump took a shit and wouldnt move water anymore which would cause it to overheat, especially when coupled with a stuck closed thermostat.
