Coolant still leaking...possibilities?

Spent all day doing my water pump and what have you on my truck because it had 120k on it and it was leaking...or so I thought. Got it all back together and now it appears that the leak is coming from the driver side front just above the oil cooler mating surface to block. I am not to sure as it is dark, but it is leaking and is not residual coolant as the truck has been ran for an hour and everything else is dry. It is hard to explain but it appears to be coming form the very top bolt of where oil cooler bolts to block at the front of motor and I cant see it. once it gets to where I can see it it looks like it is flowing between the block and the cap of oil cooler. There is no oil leaking, and there is no coolant in oil or vice versa.

Basically I am worried that it is a cracked block. Truck has been leaking in same area apparently. I am in florida and it is 70 degrees. Leak is present whether the motor is hot or cold and outside temperature does not matter.

Is there a freeze plug up there that I can not see?

Ugh.

I suppose this recessed looking quarter thin is the freeze plug? It is dry. Coolant still leaking...possibilities?-imageuploadedbyag-free1386722685.098618.jpg

Everything was dry. Cranked it up and after a few minutes you can see some leaking here running down front of motor. Coolant still leaking...possibilities?-imageuploadedbyag-free1386722867.014803.jpg. Just below and to the side of the new water pump

If I didnt know any better.. I would think it is coming from where the bolt that holds oil cooler to block bottoms out in the block. Coolant still leaking...possibilities?-imageuploadedbyag-free1386723103.187604.jpg

Well after takin a minute to think and reasses. If what I am seeing is correct I think it may be a cracked front cover where the oil cooler bolts to it.

Lazy diagnosis on my part thinkin it was a waterpump. But I would have needed a waterpump anyways.
