Ok here's my question I got a trip planned in 2 days. Was changing oil and I see a drop of antifreeze dripping from weep hole. Should I cancel this trip, will it cause damage, if I still go for the weekend trip. Any advice would be great. Thanks

Was dripping while you were watching or was there just a drip on it? Was the frame or engine below the hole wet? How low is your coolant level?

Well there is just a drip now and then, when I wipe it it clean, the next day might be the size of a quarter on the ground. Changed the water pump seal already, so it must be the seal between the engine and water pump. Just wondering what the worst maybe if I go on a 2 day trip

If it's not pouring, I would say go. Definitely keep a close eye on your coolant level and your temperature then fix it when you get back.

there is only 1 seal for water pump on that machine. Not 2 . if u replace it and u leak again its the shaft that is worn, or installed incorrect.
