    Sounds like your talking about by-pass hose tighten up the hose clamps see if it stops leaking. Note: that motor has timing cover coolant leak issues.

    the lower hose has a steel pipe that joins the lower hose to the water pump. the pipe does rot out. it can be replaced. it has one bolt holding it along with the 2 clamps.
