    the pump gears should have little to no resistance but the water pump seal will load it up a bit if you can turn it with your fingers then i think theres trouble.

    I can put a 9mm wrench on the oil pump where it goes into the engine and turn it with one finger

    I dont have an engine apart to test sorry, if your worried about it take the cover off (3 bolts) and see if its easier to turn if it is theres a problem if the same remove the outer gear and retry that only leaves the water pump seal so you then know the pumps is not binding for some reason.
