What else to rebuild/replace during water pump rebuild - 2004 Volvo Penta 5.0 Gxi-E?

Recommended Posts

I am about to rebuild my water pump and would like to know what else makes good sense to replace or rebuild along the way.  I own a 2004 Sunesta 236 and the engine compartment looks more accessible than it really is.


I am already planning to replace the serpentine belt while I have the water pump bracket removed.  Is there anything else I should consider replacing so I do not have to repeat some of the same work and contortions it takes for me to reach certain parts?


I considered the thermostat but it appears to be located more toward the top of the motor (if I have in fact located it).  Any advice would be appreciated.


Thank you!
