That's another good place where pitting of the aluminum could be not allowing the gasket to seal the two mating surfaces . If this isn't the problem i'll move on to check the injector sleeves for leaks . If the sleeves were leaking would water show up in the oil pan right away after i pressurize the cooling system ?

I took the oil cooler out tonight here's a couple of pic of the aluminum end caps where the gaskets seals . I hope that's where my problem is

Still need to take end caps off and put new seals in.

Yep will be doing that when the new center tube with gaskets and o-rings shows up . going to take a file to the sealing surfaces to try and level them out , if not i'll put them in the mill and skim cut them .

Well i didn't luck out . Installed the new oil cooler and gaskets and replaced the gasket on the water pump after i pulled it to look for cavativation , but i pressurized the cooling system and still have water coming out the oil pan . it is a slow leak as i watched the pan for the first 5 minutes or so and nothing came out , went in to watch some football and was feeling like maybe problem solved but nope , went out 15 minutes later and there was water in the catch pan . It's funny the water only comes out in spurts , you'll see nothing dripping and then a short small stream out water will come out of the pan , It's been about least 45 minutes to an hour or so and it still has 14lbs of pressure on the pressure tester gauge and about 6oz. of water in the catch pan . Well on to checking the injector cups .

Could be a front cover as well, maybe pull the water pump out and make sure its not cavitated in there, or someone drove with a junk water pump for a while and the impeller ate the cover away.

That was the first thing that i checked . i pulled the pump and I looked it over pretty hard it looked good behind there . It had the nice gray finish and there was no pitting at all . i ran my fingers over the surface and it felt smooth . Just hoping it's not a cracked cylinder head or block or cavitation in the cylinder bore . It never had any white smoke or sweet smell out the exhaust .
