So i was curious what gaskets should be replaced on a junkyard engine. I'm replacing the head gasket and water pump gasket for sure, what else should i include? All feedback is welcomed!

I'd just do all of them... that way you know they're all good.

Head, oil pan, valve cover, and so forth.

Change the timing belt as well, just to be sure.

Don't forget the obvious tune-up stuff either, cap, rotor, plugs and wires. It might not hurt to get a new oil pump as well.
