The collar on the pipe has to slip down out of the pump. i had to put some wd-40 on the pipe connection because it was corroded up. then i used some channel locks to work the pipe out of the pump. when reassembeling, make sure pipe is all the way in the pump before shoving the collar back into place.

Do a search online type how to change thermostat on ( your ) make /model/year then watch the video. Some thermostats Re mounted under the top hose on the radiator where in mounts to the motor. Some models have the thermostat mounted in the water pump housing.
could be you fitted the thermostat in the wrong way around ,or the plastic impeller on the water pump with a steel drive shaft has failed they end up with the drive shaft spinning but the impeller is not turning ,go for the thermostat first though .
Top speed is hard on a car, at that age of vehicle worn water pump and old old with buildup a bad thermostat and radiator with scale buildup on inside and debris on the outside creates more heat than released. try replacing the thermostat and water pump and doing an flush of the cooling system with an oil change and see if that helps. Also a new radiator cap will hold proper pressure on the system so dont forget that.
It is located Under hood, center, upper firewall, mounted in fuel line (basically back of dash). Take note of how it is mounted not to install backwards. Unhook battery ground. Unhook two fuel lines one on top one on bottom of filter.Mark fuel lines top/bottom tape helps not to get mixed up. Remove from clamp. place new filter in clamp noting proper top and bottom. replace fuel lines. reattach battery, cycle key on and off 3 times slowly.

You have to remove the engine mount next to it, then remove the 4 bolts in the pulley Make sure you support the engine with a floor jack, use the jack to raise the engine a few inches on the that end helps getting the pulley bolts out.
You must loosen the motor mounts on the body of the car. I did not disconnect the motor mounts completely to get at the water pump bolts. One ALL motor mount bolts are removed I jack up the motor with a floor jack.
