Ok,so I am gathering parts to upgrade the engine.So far my plan is.
1)performer intake for 2v heads
2)600cfm holly carb
3)double roller timing chain
4)This cam and lifter set http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-K5200/
5)Car all ready has dual pipes with crossover and headers will be done next year.

So should I just go with a stock reman.water pump or would you recomend something else.Also do I need anything else with this cam/lifters like spring upgrades new pushrods.
Also while I am there should I just bite the bullet and have a valve job done right away also.
let me know your opinions,Thanks

I have that basic cam grind in my '73 'BetaCat' and love it! Also with a 600cfm Holley vac sec carb, stock duals, stock 'CJ' 2700rpm converter in the C-6, and either 3.25s or 3.70 rear gears....

No spring upgrades are required with that cam since that is close to factory 351C-4V cam specs...

Water pump? Stock is fine!
