What other parts would be required to install this on a Super A? Would they be difficult to find?

Luck favors those who are prepared
To do the complete conversion, you would also need a water outlet elbow that will take a thermostat (which you also would need). It takes a different fan belt. I don't think you would need a different upper radiator support, but not sure. You should also change the head gasket.
The only part that is probably hard to find would be the outlet. It would have to come from a Farmall C or early U-2 power unit. The Super C outlet takes a larger hose.
I number of people report just putting on the pump without the other parts and getting good results. I assume they are the same guys that fix an overheating truck by removing the thermostat and running it that way.
Most people just put the pump on them and let that be it. Frankly I have always thought that the only time you would need to add a water pump would be if you were just absolutely pulling its living guts out 24/7 when it's 100 deg. outside.
Jim, if you added the upper port for the thermostat, would you have to use the taller Super C, etc. radiator too? Then you would have to get a Super C, etc. grille, etc. etc. etc. and the list goes on......
Bus Driver, FWIW I have a water pump with less than 250 hrs. on it that'll fit a Super A. When I had mine overhauled during restoration, the mechanic thought I needed it. He didn't like the "gurgling" you hear after you shut a thermosyphon cooled engine off. When I got into painting, etc. I took it off and made it thermosyphon again.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
That is why I said to get the hard to find outlet from a C or early U-2.
