yes that is what it looks like. the nipple is still in the hose i am sure i can get that out . but how do i get the other side off
Chevy Mechanic: Super Mechanic, Master technician replied 8 years ago

That is actually part of the water pump cover. If the outlet pipe is what broke, you will want to replace the water pump cover.

You take out the exhaust manifold and then it's pretty easy from there. You might also want to replace the water pump too, then you will have to take the timing cover off too. If I remember right, the cover can be done without taking the pump itself out.

 

Let me see what I have on it.
