Heater hose leaking at water pump.
 
Replace the plenum plate with Hughes' this week end along with 180 thermostat and plugs and wires and now this is my problem. Truck is back together running great not blowing smoke and doesn't smell like burning oil but during the process it hit the heater hose that is a hard line into the water pump and now have a heck of a leak. Is that resealable? The area has some corrorsion on it and moves around, or do i need to replace the water pump?
Quick response would be great, driving my father's 05 quad hemi and the gas bill sucks.

The tube has an o-ring inside. Replace it and add a dab of sealer to it and you should be ok.

Ditto. Thats what I did and it worked. When you get the new seal in, its a PITA to put it back in.

fixed the inlet tube, 10 bucks for a new one. drove it to town and the radiator exploded so back in the garage and more work.

Hahaha, oh boy. One thing i've done, I knew the cooling system in my truck was pretty much on its way out so its not a bad idea to revamp the whole system.
