Question about 1989 Ford F 250
A leak right under the water pump. I just replaced the water pump because a mechanic said that that was were the leak was coming from, that pump was bad. But it is still leaking from the same place. Is there a freeze plug in the block right there?
When you replace the water pump you have to loosen the bolts that also go though the timing chain cover. This have to be removed and the gasket behind it replaced as well as two water pump gaskets. Check all your clamps (best to use new ones) first, but you may be having gasket problems between the pump, pump backing plate, timing chain cover and engine block.

Do a pressure test, use a mirror and a flash light to pin point the leak,check to make sure all hose clamps are tight and there are no holes in the hoses that might be squirting coolant in that direction,if you cannot find it this way,steam clean the engine and use a florescant tracer
