everything seems fine just the water drains out quickly and engine overheats.

Jayadev, I might be able to help you. Can you please post foto from pulley side and from pump impeller side. Might have jammed. Shaft seal seems to be damaged. You have to proceed carefully else you might end up damaging a part.
Also, this pump rotates in clockwise direction. Any lock nut (if present) on the shaft will have thread other way round.

The Tipo and Uno shared many parts. Also the sedan version of the Tipo was called the Tempra. Keep this in mind when searching for parts.
