Question Coolant and Compressor Leak

Well Now all of a sudden i am getting a pretty big coolant leak, i think coming out of my waterpump, even though its only 2 weeks old, and also I head a air leak so i poped the hood and this big tube has liquid on it and water a white color. I am guessing it is the air compressor, but how do you fix these?

what waterpump did you use- dieselsite, BPD, or stock? Also, are you sure it is coming from the waterpump and not the o-ring that is in the metal heater hose below the alternator? (hard to tell from the pic)

It is a NAPA one with metal impellers. It might be coming out of both the o-ring that you said but i did see it dripping slowly from the bottom of the water pump.

You may have more than one thing going on. The 3rd pic is of the dryer/filter of the a/c if ya got a lot of moisture there thats not good.

You will need to evac the system and dry it out, replace the dryer and check the evap core and recharge.

Well looks like I am stuck trying to do the head gaskets myself since I dont have the $$$ to take it somewhere here to have it done. What all parts am I going to need to replaced during this. Also If you can please post the part # and possibly best price/place to get them.

Well it looks like i am stuck and going to have to do the head gaskets my self. I ordered all new parts all the way from gaskets, push rods, lifters, glow plug and wires and much much more. Does anyone have the torque specs of everything I am going to need for the studs, lifters and everything else?
