At first I believed it was just the water pump since there was no smoke being blown or smell of coolant. After replacing the pump it was evident the pump was bad because large amounts of smoke and the smell of coolant are present.

Should I perform a compression test to ensure there aren't any cracks or faulty valves before changing the gasket? All input is appreciated... THANKS!!!
You are unclear in the above. Is your new pump bad or your old pump ?
