603 coolant leak!

I was trying to figure out why the AC compressor of the SDL wasn't kicking in. I traced it to a connector that came off the pressure switch on the dryer. Good thing I was looking in that area because my eyes shifted to coolant along the lip of the radiator under the upper hose.

Aaaaah, not the new head!

Looks like the hose has given up the ghost. The radiator is one of the last things the PO replaced before selling. Cooling problems? It has a metal sleeve inside the neck. I don't see any cracks in the neck but I can't really see the bottom third of it well enough to be sure. I sure hope it's just the hose.
