SOURCE: Water Pump Leaking
the hardest part of this job is removing your fan clutch. you removed your top fan shroud, then your fan clutch, its reverse thread. take off your belt, upper radiator hose and 6 10mm bolts hold it in. clean water pump housing and put all back together. aftermarket water pumps do not come with theermostat, dealer pumps do. remove your belt tensioner from old water pump 3- 15mm bolt, two different sizes and install on your new pump. you need, 10mm socket, 15mm socket, flat head screw driver, pliers to removed hose,fan clutch tool(rent at autoparts store)

If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.
1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).
2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)
3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.
Here is a list of replacements:
^ water pump
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)
**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.
Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

There are a couple of things that could be wrong. 1. The new water pump has failed. This is called infant mortality. It happens sometimes. 2.Sometimes the waterpumps are not assembled correctly by the manufacturer and the diaphragm bolts were not tightened creating a leak. 3. The gasket may not h ave sealed properly. All of these require removal of the water pump and inspection to find the root cause.

SOURCE: I have a leak of
whichever side of the motor you see the drive belts on.
Ford puts theirs on the passenger side but I see gm stuff on the drivers side too.
pop the hood and look for the drive belts. It is either drivin by one of these belts OR off the timing belt under the timing belt cover.
