Default Water pumps and cooling?

So I got an retro RadioShack tsunami last fall and have been doing some mods to it. Sitting around at home, I am thinking about watercooling and how to do it. What sizes of tube and fuel lines do I need to diy it? And is installing an idle pump worth it? Something that will keep water flowing even at a standstill.

So watercooling is easy for one of these all you need is a piece of 5/32 brass tubing cut on a 45* angle and bring it through the bottom behind the prop on the left side of the prop like in the photo attached(the red do is where it needs to go). I also attached the water pickup design link so you can see what im talking about. then just run 5/32 or 4mm ID silicone tubing for the cooling lines. waterpumps are not necessary and it takes a very specific one to work properly anyways. I don't recommend adding one at all.
