With the pump in place and tension on the pulley it is very difficult to observe any play. Play does not mean anything at all. I have seen pumps that have no play, dont leak but make an incredible amount of noise. It just depends on where they are in their death cycle. I recommend that you use a stethoscope and listen to each of the rotating components bearings and it should be very obvious which one is the problem.
