I'm Not a tech but i would suggest replacing your thremostat and at least the short hose between the head and your pump. if you have the old plastic thermostat housing i would also suggest replacing that for the aftermarket aluminum one. i remember my neck beaking on mine right after i changed my pump. NOT FUN this means tow truck time! in answer to your other question, I purchased a aftermarket Japanese pump (possibly reman.) 2 years/50,000 miles ago and it works fine so far.
Good Luck, and God Bless America!
