NO is the answer. But ponder this. The thermostat works because as the temperature in its base gets hotter it opens and allows hot water to move into the radiator where it cools and goes back to the engine. Transfer of heat and all. But if there is a bad or defective water pump then the hot water does not get there to open the valve and the engine over heats. Too little water can also do the same thing. Is there a problem you are having specficially?

How would you know if a water pump was causing a Kubota tractor to overheat with no thermostat?

If you are unsure if it is heating because of a water pump or a thermstat, you can find out by removing the thermostat. If it still heats without a thermostat, then you know it is the water pump. Without a thermostat, the water flow has nothing to cause it to heat unless the water pump fails to circulate the water. No circulation of the water would cause the over heating.
