The pipes connected to the pump are metal. And it seems all the gaskets and o-rings come with the pump. Is there anything else I really need?

At least the pimp's not leakin' from the peep hole Laughing .....Only other things you need are coolant, time, and maybe a new thermostat. I'm a believer in swappin' t-stats whenever I replace a water pump. Oh yeah, how do your belts look?

Actually I'm just posting to bump your title to the top......

Pretty much what you need comes with the pump, if all you want to do is the pump. Of course, it's a good time to check out the stubby oil cooler hoses, the coupling hose for the lower crossover pipe, belt, etc.

All other parts mentioned are newer. All replaced in the last year. The water pump was never done cause it has always been working. So I am only looking to replace the pump at this tis time. Thanks for the replys Razz

don't forget to get the paper gasket for the crossover pipe to the left side engine. This gasket never comes with the water pump kit and i cant get think of any other way of removing the water pump off its studs without loosening that crossover pipe (maybe you guys can do it but i've never been able to). once you loosen it that gasket is toast Wink

The left side? Not sure what you mean. But if you mean the flange that exits the pump body lower right, where the under-pulley crossover pipe attaches, the Hepu pumps have always come with that gasket. Other brands may not, but that's the pumps I use from VC, and I think GW and BD supply the same brand.
