Parts for 226 Flathead 6.

Hello, I have a 1943 Ford G8T. It is an army version of a 1.5 Ton truck. It has the flathead 6 with the 4 spd tranny. What I'm needing is a rebuilt water pump, carb or rebuild kit, generator, and maybe a regulator. What I need to know is if I get parts for a 1942 or a 1946/47 truck since some part numbers are different. Is there a way I can tell the difference between the Flathead 6 motors from 1942 and 1946/47? Here is a vid of the truck and motor running.

Water pump

If you have the old water pump,take it to 0riley,kragen (whatever it is in your area) they can send it to parts america to have it rebuilt. It took about 45 min. of them making phone calls but the asst. man.got it figured out.
