Is a 2000 s-10 4.3litre water pump standard or reverse rotation?

The water pump would be a standard rotation. The serpentine belt moves clockwise on the model truck which would make it standard not reverse. With a serpentine belt system like the one in the 2000 S10 4.3, any pulley that is grooved turns clockwise. Any pulley that is smooth turns counterclockwise. The water pump pulley on that S10 is smooth and turns CCW.
