Pressurize your system to 16psi and inspect these areas closer for seepage or drips. Its alot easier doing it this way, than on a hot, running engine.

Oh, phew! that sounds like a reasonable repair and a hopeful next step. Thanks, i'll let you know how it goes. Sorry to be dramatic, I was getting concerned.
