Replacing my water pump this weekend. As far as the water pump and coolant goes, what else should I buy? Gaskets? Thermostat/housing? Seals?
Do you

Hello, I'm Danny.

Yes, I would recommend changing the thermostat since you will be draining the coolant out.Both the water pump and thermostat when purchased will include new gaskets.As far as the RTV (gasket sealer) goes I recommend Permatex brand ultra copper. Here are a few tutorials showing how to replace a water pump and thermostat:
