this diagram is not showing up very well but if you are pointing to the pipe that looks like 2 inches that is not it the pipe im talking about is elbow shaped about 5/8 or 1/2 inch in diameter goes directly into the manifold from the water pump there is a rubber hose connecting the the two

It the end that is leaking and you are not able to repair then the intake will need to be replaced because the tube is pressed into the manifold. I have enclosed intake manifold instructions.
