So i just installed a new water pump on my 89 3.9. I Let my brother borrow my rover about a month ago to go up the mountain in it because it was snowing pretty hard, and he called me up saying the Rover was filling up with smoke and the engine bay was as well. He stopped obviously once he noticed that, and had it towed back to my house. When i cranked it up and looked for the leak it was coming from the bottom right bolt one of the real long ones that hold the power steering pump bracket. So once i installed the new one with new gasket and everything it seemed to run fine, but once i looked at it after it sat idling for about 10 minutes, it was a constant stream of coolant from the same place. Also the actual pump was really hot after only about 10 minutes of idling. Is there something i'm missing? any help is much appreciated!
