Didnt see pic but our trucks are bad about leaking out the thermostat housing. Order a billet one from dieselsite. I just fixed mine and now the water pump is leaking out the weep hole

Where is the weep hole located? I want to make sure its just the housing and not the water pump. Where can you get the billet housing? Is it just the elbow for the t-stat or what?
