Engine About To Go In

You guys use anything else besides a gasket (felpro) when installing the oil pump, fuel pump and t-stat? Also on a thermostat note... I had a 180 in there... what's working well with these 400's? Still learning as I go!
Just got the engine back from the shop due to a spun bearing, and just finished upgrading to power steering! Also threw on the 17" year one rally II's, great wheels!

did the tack weld the oil pump to the pick up? If not it may vibrate loose. I use a one piece oil pan gasket from Ames Performance to reduce the chance of main seal leakage. Just suggestions. Good luck and enjoy your new motor
