Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name isXXXXX am a Certified Auto Technician with 25+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. I don't know your automotive experience level, so I may have to ask questions of you before I can answer. I only know as much about your concern as you have stated in your post, so please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible.

Is this water outlet above the water pump and just below the thermostat housing?
I need to know exactly which water outlet you are referring to....If you can take a pic and post it here, it would help greatly, let me know if you can do that....

Hello Don,I am fairly certain that outlet comes as part of the timing cover assembly. Not available separately. It is pressed into the timing cover. It is very possible that if you extract the piece out, you can tap the hole with pipe threads and install a universal outlet that is threaded in to your existing timing cover. You should be able to purchase everything needed to perform this repair at your local Napa parts store.Of course the AC compressor will need to be removed... If you need additional information, don't hesitate to ask, I am happy to help until your concern is resolved. Thank you!Robert
