I'm replacing my timing belt and water pump in the very near future. I'm already getting a new oil seal, but is there anything else I need as far as gaskets or other seals involved in this job?

Timing belt, water pump, rear main seal, thermostat, coolant, a rocket ship, tensioner (optional), clutch and flywheel (optional).

yes, there is a gasket, but I think it comes with the water pump.. just ask when you pick up the WP.

you're not pullin the motor when you do this, are you?

well I don't intend to pull the motor (to save time and money) because all my fluids are fine except the tranny fluid which I'm replacing anyway.

Don't get a rear main seal if you aren't pulling the motor....get a front main seal.

Might as well get a tube of Permatex Ultra Grey so you can reseal the oil pump. You'll want to remove it and check the phillips screws for any that have backed out.
