65 P2, BJ8.

week ago--developed coolent leak-----not from hoses.

this week---jacked car up--pulled the water pump and all hoses.

WP gasket was a "cement" mess---took quite a while to scrape it off-------cleaned VERY good--Both surfaces---added new gasket and a thin layer of Hylomar (blue).

Reassembled-------all bolts ver snug----checked for tightness several times.

STILL a pretty good coolent leak-----can't tell exactly where it is coming from---can't see well enough---but it is from the area under the water pump.  rechecked all bolts--all very tight.

Before I tear evcerythig down again----question

Q-----Can the WP itself leak---if so from where---other than around the gasket seal?

WP does not make any noises and is very smooth.

???????  Any ideas what else to do?
