Default Water pump leak?

Is it possible for the water pump to leak somewhere beside the weep hole? I am having an intermittent water leak and can't see to find it. Truck is NOT running hot when the leak occurs either. Anywhere else that I should be looking?

Are you seeing coolant on the ground or is it just disappearing over time? My first recommendation would be to have the cooling system and cap pressure tested.

Getting it every once in a while on the ground. Also the water appears to be coming from near the A/C comp area. Is teh water pump weep hole on a 5.9 on the bottom? Where exactly?

It's on the bottom but the pulley may obscure your view. A pressure test will help pinpoint the source.

The water pump was bad. Water was seeping out the weep hole and getting slung up to the top of the engine by the pulley. Now if I can just figureout how to wire the electric fan.

Four wires off of the fan, dual fan or is there a relay already wired in?
Sensor on the radiator with two wires sounds like a normal open thermal switch, correct ?

I looked on the Hayden website and nothing on there looks like what I am working with.
I have 4 wires total.
2 are coming from the single fan
2 are coming from the thermal switch. I do not know if it is normally open or normally closed though.
There is no relay that I can see.
Please help guys and gals.
