1998 BMW 740il overheating after I installed new waterpupump thermostat hoses & raidiator. Still overheating. Liking from the front of the engine when it's running the water pump is spinning counter clockwise. Looking at the old pumps back side it looks as the water is flowing the wrong direction. According to the fins on the pumps inside or back side that mounts to engine. Is this because there are different pump fins for different model bmw's? Almost as if the water pump fins are turning the wrong direction? Can you please help me with this issue? I also replaced expansion tank.or could it possible be the electric plug that attaches to the thermostat? Very frustrated please help me with this issue. Any & all information is most helpful & thank you for all you are able to offer in advice. Respectfully signed Tony

Possible you have the belt routed wrong? That could cause pump to spin in wrong direction.
