Which housing????...top water neck or the bottom housing????
If the bottom one, then you'll need the " Tin " gasket, an 'O' ring for the bypass pipe, and the t'stat seal.
File all mating faces to make sure they are flat and smooth.
Clean all mating faces before using sealant.
DO NOT use sealant on the t'stat seal.
