3m scotchkote™ 226p hotmelt compound. You'll have to heat it with a torch to melt, but smear it on and it won't leak again. It was developed to seal cracks in gas and oil pipelines. I've used it on...

My routine is water pumps, thermostats, gear oil, check compression, inspect plugs, and grease everything every year. Doesn't cost much if you do yourself and you have piece of mind all year.

Great. Googans renting jet skis and pontoon boats just wasn't enough. Now they have a 60,000 lb battering ram to run into stuff.
