Cue the discussion about water pump brands. AFAIK, the usual suspects all sell County brand WPs which are, well, suspect. 

Michael Salter sells kits, but not all of us have the proper tools and skills (IIRC a hydraulic press is required) . Maybe we can talk Michael into starting a rebuilding service???

This car is VERY frequently driven---and at least 3 times a week-----usually a 75 to 100 mile round trip when driven. The last long ride was when I discivered the leak---and--it was after that drive that I replaced all the gaskets. 

I have now concluded that is is the WP since the last time I did observe coolent coming from the bottom opening of the pump----------also---another piece of info---the leak didn't start right after starting the engine--it would start about 5 of 10 minutes after being started and getting a little temp/prfessure.
