Leaking water under crankshaft

My 94 Ranger is leaking radiator water. It seems to be coming from below the crank shaft. Where do you think this is leaking from, and what is the fix?

Please Help.

Yup, coming from weep hole under water pump shaft, means main seal in the water pump is worn out.

You will need to get a new water pump.

Getting the fan clutch off can be a challenge, there is a simple but specialized wrench set for doing this, auto parts store often loan them to you if you buy the water pump from them, or you can rent them.
Cost is $15-$60
$15 for the set for your year, $60 is the set for all years.
On the Radiator support where all the stickers are there will be a diagram of the fan belt and also the direction to turn the nut on the fan clutch to loosen and tighten.
