Water pump

My water pump is leaking on my 2002 7.3. Been looking around for parts and seem can't afford Motorcraft. They seem high. I came up with Gates and Bosch. Gates were $85 and Bosch were $115. That where my budget is. Found them on Rockauto.com. I need opinion. Plan on order either one tonight and have it ship out so I can fix it this weekend. Does water pump usually include gasket? Thanks.

All the ones I have done had the gaskets with the water pump. Not sure if the brand really matters? I have used what I consider "no name" water pumps and so far the shortest lasting one went 90k.

Thanks Aaron. I think I'm going to go with Bosch because when I read it and it said gasket included. While the others didnt say. I'm going to wait and see what others will say.

Skip after market. Get OEM from Riffraff. $150. Pay to play or you will replace your water pump way too often.

Another option is what ever Autozone carries. Yeah you will replace it a lot, but they come with a lifetime warranty.

Just finished installed water pump. I installed Gates water pump. Everything seem simple. Had it done about 2 hours. I added some Motorcraft diesel cooling system additive. I put 4 oz of that and I checked my cooling system and it came out right below -30. Should I add some more of the additive or am I good for now? I run Zerex G-05 coolant and distill water. Let me know.
