Re: I'm new, need some advice.....

Welcome Mark.

Melling sell an HV oil pump. It's available on many online shops or at Egge, Lincoln Land etc.

I found a new camshaft to OEM design by Falcon Global (on eBay). It was correct & the same one sold by Egge.

Cheers,
Reijer

Re: the other two thermostats?

Welcome sergent. Remove & do not replace the two little block thermostat. While you're down there, make sure to replace the timing set with a new set from Cloyes. Here's why: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=262
