Just wanted to make sure I was thinking correctly
Greetings and Thanks,
To all that have replied. I just wanted to make sure being as I can't see under the pump from any angle you approach it that there wasn't something else, hose, etc. that could possibly be causing the coolant leak. From a top side view of the water pump it shouldn't be to hard to remove, maybe the back bolt may give me a problem but compared to a Ford Aerostar van with 16 bolts to remove without removing the fan, clutch or radiator, with less than a few inches to work in, this should be a piece of cake. I can't image why I'd have to replace the engine shock mount, front cover seal, bypass hose etc. They all are pretty accessible from what I can see.
