Can I over tighten the packing nut? 1/4 turn at a time and check?

I am not sure I had my friend do it for me. I was there when he did it. I don’t remember seeing them and think that would have caught my eye. That will be my first check.

Thanks guys. So it look like it is somewhere from the water pump or a hose. Will dive in and see if I can spot.

Thanks TX Goat. Sorry for confusion. I am talking about the Motor Mount. (Below the waterpump). I replaced my water pump last year and still have a small leak, that I am suspecting is the motor mount.

I have been evaluating an anti-freeze leak. It is not a big drip, but enough for the pan to catch. I think i have narrowed it down to the Mounting Block, and thinking the rubber has come to a point wear it is brittle enough to have a slow leak. I replaced the water pump last year, and if i was wiser, would have tackle it then but we live and learn!.

Is this a common point for a leak? I have checked around the other points and have not seen anything. It is "wet" on the underside of the mount, and the inside, where the 2 bolts hold it on.

Should I replace just the rubber mounts? or the mounting plate as well? Do I add sealer as i would with a gasket?

Don gave me nice instructions on how to go about it, but tossing it out there for other thoughts and guidance.

Thanks!
Ben

Thanks. Yes. It pretty much gets wedged in. I am looking to see how to complete the bottom edge. Where it meets the running board trim. Not sure if cut straight across? Tuck it under?

Well done Don! Interested to see some pictures of the front end of the block if you remove your fan. Want to see what is below the water pump.

Could someone post a picture of the trim piece of rubber that’s between the running board and the rear fender? Looking to see how it all ties together with the running board trim and fender.

Thanks!
