The only reason for them to seize would be that they got dirt or something metal in them. Are you running one of those HD oil pump shafts or the stock Ford shaft? When you say took the gear off did it shred or break the roll pin? Any debris in the pan or filter? If it just broke the roll pin and the gear came off you should have replaced that pin after the first failure. DOes the oil pump turn at all when it's out of the engine?
