Default coolent leak after all this? wtf

Okays i have my self a 1998 impreza rs that i got my self because my brighton just wasent that cool. So i buy the car knowing that it has a bad head gasket. i pull the motor replace the head gaskets have head milled etc. replace plugs wire so on so fourth. I get the motor back in and running take it for a drive the clutch slips. so pull the motor again replace the clutch so on and so fourth. now i take the car to work today an look under it and see coolent dripping from it. i see that its coming from the timming belt covor area so i knows that its going to be no qwick fix there. i pick up some barrs stop leak and put that in and fill the rad back up and head home. now i have the whole front of the motor pulled apart and see that its coming from the water pump. the car has 115k on it and looks like the t-belt and water pump must of been done at the 105k mark. vary clean looking water pump. i checked 2 of the bolts that i could get to on the water pump and they seemed a little lose. now i am a little lost on what i sould do. I do not have the funds after all of this to go out and buy another water pump. never mind that the bolt that holds the timing belt tensioniser is half stripped out. i realy dont want to pull the belt again and have to replace the tensioniser and the thing that bolts to the block that the tensioniser bolt to. need some other opions here. even beter if some one in my area that prob has little more knolage on this can take a look at it. thanks

Sorry to hear about the trouble. I would just replace the water pump, if I remember right mine was like $60. I would replace the tensioner bolt to, its cheap to just fix for the next time you need it off.

The torque spec (incase you need it) for the Water pump is somewhere between 5-10lbs I just did mine at 15lbs because I took a guess before I got the real numbers.

thanks for the help. i did end up taking the t belt off and taking the water pump out. the spot it looked like it was leaking from was one of the bolts that was holding it down. the bolts that held it on where vary lose and there didnt seem to be any kind of sealent on the gasket. the timing belt is back on so tomarrow ill find out if its good or not

There is'nt any sealant on the wateer pump gasket though it is coated with some sort of black stuff the does a decent job. It's a crush gasket too so you're not supposed to re-use it.

I won't tell though.
