Get a light and mirror and check the weep-hole under the pump shaft.
This is not unusual failure mode... the seal is wearing out and it doesnt
show a leak until the engine cools. Running pressure keeps seal seated.
Suggest also change rad cap, the reclaim release valve (center of gasket) may
be sticky making problem worse. But pump is definitely bad if you see
trickle or drops at weep-hole
