99 power stroke coolent leak

Hi I just bought this 99 power stroke and drove it about an hour home and water pump started leaking so I decided it would be a great idea for me to change it my self I do know a little bit about working on cars but I've never spent 20 hours just to try and change a water pump but that's besides the fact so I get it all back together and everything is working great but after a couple minutes of driving I get a little coolent leak looks like it's coming from the water pump but it's not that's completely dry all the way around so it's dropping off really close to the crank shaft pully and but more so behind it off the oil pan I just can't fin where the leak is coming from any ideas?

It could be your front oil cooler adapter gasket where it attaches to the block, it is right up front by the pump. If it is that I would recommend doing the rear gasket as well, while your there probably would be worth putting new orings in the oil cooler as well. You will have to drain the coolant to do any one of those 3 things so might as well hit them all in one fell swoop.

It acts like a radiator only instead of air passing over the fins it is coolant passing over them to help pull the heat out of the engine oil.

In the video above the guy only removes the rear block adapter but you will want to check the gasket behind the front as well if you suspect leaking up there. It sits right behind your pump and just below it so it could make it seem like the pump is leaking.

Have you checked around the thermostat housing REALLY CLOSELY especially around the back side where it can be hard to see.
