I printed the timing belt instructions from the USRM, but other than that? Anything?

As far as the coolant system, go for it. You might plug up a passage in the radiator or a steam hole somewhere, whoop-d-doo.

I usually use the water pump gasket with some spray-on copper stuff on there to fill any little voids.

good tip, but i think using anti-seize compound might end up cheaper.
I clean and wire brush all the bolts I take out and then use a light coating of moly/graphite engine assembly lube on the threads.
i may be wrong, come to think of it i dont think ive ever actually PURCHASED either. large families are great (i have four brothers, a father, and an uncle and the only one who isnt a "car guy" is the professional mechanic:eek: )
also, what about using a thin layer/application of lightweight grease for the oil seals and o-rings to facilitate proper sealing when installing, and to hlep make the gasket stick? thats just something that ive always done when it was an option myself... any qualms?
