[C38] Spinning water pump shaft and no spinning impeller

Hi All

Five months ago I replaced the raw water pump and when I turned on the
engine after a couple of months of inactivity I noticed that no water was
coming out of the exhaust port.
I concluded that the new impeller was not spinning.
I opened up the pump cover and saw that the shaft was indeed spinning but
not the impeller.

I replaced the impeller with an older one  that I had saved from a previous
maintenance and this worked.

Barring a manufacturing defect on the impeller's central keyed ring, what
else could be wrong? The pump shaft looks OK (visually).

The impellers are not cheap for some reason.

Thanks for your suggestions.
