If you got a lot of miles you may want to replace the belt tensioner. You could put on an adjustable cam sprocket but if you got a stock cam it may not be worth it. If you got an original water pump, you might want to replace that

Best to go ahead and replace rubber hoses in the area and the thermostat.

Shaft Seals for the Crank, Aux Shaft & Cam. Also Tensioner, & Water pump as stated eariler. Hoses, Belts & Thermostat are also good candidates.
