deriveter valve is under the intake and they do make a gasket for it.

I got in a head gasket kit I bought from AM-autoparts.com

http://www.am-autoparts.com/AM/Gaskets/ ... -38184692/ and all of those gaskets are good I have used 2 sets on my car and 1 set on 91JEGT's car and both our cars still run great and don't leak

plus cheap with free shipping.

not sure about the water pump issue, are you scraping ALL the old gasket material off the block? torquing it to the correct specs? just common things that do get overlooked no matter who does the work.

the IAC is on the bottom of the throttle body itself, and that gasket I have never found, the valve in the middle of the intake on the under side is the deriveter valve and they do make a gasket for that. I just use some silicone on the IAC and have never had an issue with it leaking or vacuum leaks, idk what that deriveter valve does but it's there. silicone and tighten them screws up tight that should make a good enough gasket on either the IAC or deriveter valve.

i'm guessing the OP isn't using a water pump sealant
