Thanks for the input. I did not find any problems when I checked the hoses after running up to temp.

I did see where water had been present and quickly dried in the bottom of the fan shroud. It looks like it may have come from a bad seam in the bottom passenger side of the radiator. It is an after market radiator about two years old. Its been over 100 degrees here for a few weeks so maybe the radiator has a small leak at the seam and it just evaporates quickly.

It also could be coming from the little hose at the neck of the reservoir. Not sure why it would overflow though.

Guess I will just keep an eye on it for now.
