" Some times it seems better to keep older parts in than replace. "'s best to rebuild older parts than to replace them.

Usually.....but not always....a water pump will give you fair warning before it goes. It will squeak or leak. I'd keep the new one on the shelf.

I've never seen a need for a temp gauge on an N.

I doubt any parts store sells plug wire by the foot w/ crimp on ends anymore. But it doesn't hurt to ask.

I just bought some copper core ignition wire and ends from our local NAPA. They called it "Tractor Wire" because only tractors and some lawn mowers use it any more.

Both the wire and ends were in stock.

7mm wire core ignition wire is Belden 734803.

7mm Terminal, distributor end with two wings is Belden 727008.

7mm Terminal, "snap lock" 90 degree for spark plug end is Belden 727006.

7mm Terminal, "snap lock" straight for spark plug end is Belden 727005.

I didn't get the terminal boots, but they are also available. The older black ones may be harder to get. The local NAPA carries the red silicone boots for sure, but I didn't ask about the black ones.

Just an FYI...

If you are rebuilding the water pump you have to do some pressing.

You have to press the old shaft out, the impellor on the new shaft and the new shaft into the bearings/housing.

I tore mine out only to find out I couldn't get it pressed until Monday.

Another option is the other site that is just8n's, they have a complete assembled unit including the pulley for not too much more.
