Can anyone tell me what water pump and timing cover came with a 1965 289 2b convertible built in August of 65? I am looking for original part numbers and appropriate casting dates for an Aug 1965 build date. Also can someone confirm if they are cast iron or aluminum?

Ford changed from aluminum water pumps to cast iron in June of 1965. Casting number would be C5AE-8505-K or C5OE-8505-B. This required a change to front timing cover casting number C5OE-6059-A1. Dates are typically about 1-4 weeks before build date, but I have seen a rear axle housing center section which was cast just days before the scheduled build date.
