96 power stroke coolant leak

I have a 96 power stroke with a small coolant leak. Have replaced water pump and oil cooler gaskets and O rings; Twice. looks like its leaking on the back side of the front header of the oil coolers. front cover gasket? I pulled the fan belt so I could move the a/c and power steering pump to get a better view while its running and still can not see leak even with a dental mirror as there are two steel lines running vertically. removed the bolt holding the steel lines to gain a little better view. without the water pump turning its more of a weep. top view a little weeping on back side of front oil cooler header/front cover area. bottom view can see weeping coming down the backside of cooler header. Just can not see complete back side of header from top or bottom view. Puzzled!

Has anyone replaced the front cover gasket between the block and water pump? Any tricks or pitfalls?
