Good morning,

I attached the brands from rockauto for you to view. All the brands I listed are good as long as they are new, not re-manufactured.

Do not use the Cardone pump. That is not new.

Removal and Installation
1. Drain the cooling system.

2. Loosen the coolant pump pulley bolts.
3. Remove the accessory drive belt.

4. Remove the bolts and the coolant pump pulley.

5. Remove the bolts and the coolant pump.
Discard the O-ring seal.

6. CAUTION: Do not rotate the coolant pump housing once installed in the engine. Damage to the O-ring seal can occur, causing the coolant pump to leak.

NOTE: Install a new O-ring seal and lubricate with the clean engine coolant.

To install, reverse the removal procedure.
7. Fill and bleed the cooling system.

It is in the first attachment I sent you. I just opened it up and the pumps and brands are there.

Motorcraft would be my first choice.
