Got four bolts to the fan blades then four nuts holding the clutch

I removed the old one and didn't find much wear or any cracks. I replaced it anyway.

I recently replaced the upper radiator hose and the heater hose as well because those had cracked.

Anyway,

Besides those three hoses I don't know where else to look. Anyone have insight? It drips from the front of the oil pan right next to the belt and the top end doesn't appear to be damp at all.

Here are some pictures. Hopefully I explained it well enough. Maybe the water pump or something?
Just make sure you salvage the bolts that are on the water pump not the mounting bolts the ones that has nothing but threads that you bolt the fan clutch to my water pump didn't come with any

Yeah I read that it's highly recommended to replace the fan clutch while i do the pump. $25 for the pump and $35 for the fan clutch. All in all won't be too bad but I have to do it Thursday on payday. I'm stuck on my bike right now and really missing my jeep. Except enjoying not paying for such high gas prices lately

when you get your new pump they make a kit for the studs. Much easier to just buy the new ones then try and get the old ones out
