ive never ordered from rock auto always from amazon always been happy. but their descriptions and search suck so i usually look up the parts on rock auto or similar and search the part number on amazon. i would think if it shows them and doesnt specifically say gaskets not included, your fine

Went with the Amazon and hoping for the gaskets. I had free shipping with it so I thought $50 was worth putting it off another week

So next weekend I'm going to be doing a cooling system overhaul we'll call it. Radiator, upper intake, water pump, and maybe the heater hoses.

Does the order I attack this make one job any easier? It seems these are all essentially isolated as far as repairs go

Also, autozone write up says water pump I need to lift engine. Is that true? if so, can I just put a jack below it?

Alright... here'* what I have picked up / in the mail, please let me know if I'm missing anything:

Upper intake (crossing fingers for gaskets included, thinking I'll get it. Should be here within next few days so I can order from Autozone if need be)
Radiator
Water pump w/ gasket
Water pump gasket maker
LIM gaskets
Red RTV for the spots recommended
Both heater hoses
Hose clamps
Metal heater hose fitting to replace plastic one for bypass hose
Two gallons of extra coolant (plan on re using most of the stuff in there, with leaks its all pretty recent)
5 quarts Valvoline 10w-30 full synthetic oil
Oil pan gasket
Liquid Wrench
Torque Wrench (20-200 in/lbs)
2x4 for putting under the pan to jack up the engine to remove the water pump
Finally... lots of shop towels and Fast Orange.

Going to be a busy weekend, but once that coolant is out I have no easy method of getting to a parts store, so I need everything here before I start.

Hopefully! Come Monday I'll have leak free oil and cooling systems. Tips and advice is very welcomed
