I agree about not using the electric water pump. I used them for years in my drag race cars. The biggest advantage is you can continue to circulate water with the engine off to cool down between runs.

You'll mostly have 1/4-20's, 5/16-18's and 3/8-16's. Except for the door hinges on the door itself which will be 3/8-24.

Grandpa's gonna do what Grandpa wants to do. That's just how we Grandpas are. When he pulls it with the loader and it fires up he will look at you with that "I told you it would" grin on his face and you will never hear the end of the story

Been there, done that. Wire wheel all of them nice and clean. Chase all the threaded holes and nuts. Chase all the bolt threads. Sort them by thread size, length and head style/head markings. This will show you the quantity of each. That's the key.
