Removed water pump and sent it off to be rebuilt.  I'm wanting to change hoses, optispark, wires, and thermostat while I'm in there.  Any advice on suppliers and brands that have held up well would be appreciated.

you might also want to examine the coil... verify that there are no burn marks around the outside of the windings near the inside of external frame..
