Got a new water pump the other day

Took out the old one all sweet and put the new one in. Went to fit back up the pulley and the fan clutch that sit over the shaft.

The pulley goes on fine but the fan clutch is not going past the part in the middle of the water pump where the shaft sits.

Is there any special trick to getting it on or can i just assume it's a **** pump and take it back for a different brand?

Thanks in advance

compare the diameters of the hole in the back of the clutch and the shaft on the pump.
you might need to clean out the hole in the back of the clutch with a bit of sandpaper.
if its not even close theres 2 options:
1: the pump is wrong.
2: the pump is right and someone in the past swapped out the fan AND the clutch with one that is similar. (unlikely)

also make sure you have loosened the belts off enough
