I'm having trouble finding the weep hole on my GL 1500 water pump. Can I have one point it out to me on the attached picture?
Thanks
Scott

The weep hole is up near the oil filter. Just right of the oil filter from bottom looking up. This might help.

I did some looking on the internet and it seems not all the weep holes are visible. I wonder if they added the lip to protect the hole from getting debis and corrosion that might plug the hole. The pictures should help understand. The red line is the weep hole while the blue is the drain plug. Your picture is included showing where the weep hole might be located. Could be visible but for the extra lip.?????

If the engine or pump seal would fail I bet it would drip from the lip as the hole is not visible.

So all the 6 cylinders show no weep hole? ?? It is under the lip, right?
No, that's not correct. My 93 has a visible weep hole.
