Parts is parts

Creeping up on those 25 posts needed, apparently, for posting pics here ...

I'm otherwise busy today, but have started researching/pricing parts. Finding the correct replacement piston might be more involved than first thought. I'm seeing at least two different dome shapes, and also two different ring landing widths for one of the rings. Due to other my time commitments I probably can't resolve this one in my head tonight, but do hope to start ordering the obvious parts like water and oil pump, etc.

I want to replace the fuel filter too (that will relieve the pressure!), but am seeing two different types. The Fram G8018 likely the correct one? And where is it installed? It's not in the fuel line under the hood; I hope I don't have to drop the tank -- that's not a fun job.
