I always used orange copper RTV sealant, granted that was probably overkill. It's better to use a bit of sealant on both sides of the gasket than to find a leak after you've put everything back together. Especially with the waterpump.

Ditto on the GMB, they are new, not remanufactured.

However I did get one that had the pulley boss crooked on the shaft,
I didn't notice untill I installed it and ran a few hundred miles on it,
I was pissed.
I usually use Permatex Aviation Gasket Sealer on the gasket to the pump,
and a sparing amount of silicone on the block side. The permatex is
near impossible to get off once it hardens.

Regarding the tensioner, I usually get the Ebay timing belt kit.
It comes with the tensioner and is priced less than the tensioner
alone.
This one's a smokin' deal for 30.95

Thanks to T3Rag Top, DTM GTi, CJDavE, and Jamal for the great recs.
I did go with the timing belt kit and GMB water pump from 123 Auto Parts Store.
Very good prices. Now if I can only get the weather to cooperate I could get started
on this project.
Regards,
