Well, I had to replace pretty much all the piping around that area, so that was an issue too. My water pump is right there, too.
I used those stainless steel braided flex hoses to connect the inlet and outlet; the old fitting were in a different place than the new ones.
The WH comes out and goes in from the outside; getting it out isn't much of an issue, seeing as how mine had the fiberglass / cardboard insulation jacket.
The new one, however, had a styrofoam insulating two-piece thingy that wouldn't fit in the hole. I ended up using the bottom piece and leaving the top piece out - one of these days I'll wrap the top half in fiberglass.
SharkBite fittings are your friend!

Looking for some inside information to maybe save a step or two.
Thanking you in advance,
