but its not the weep hole on the water pump cover...

looks like it is coming from the tube that connects the upper left side radiator hose to the head...looking at the parts diagram, it looks as if there's an oring there, and that may have gone bad...

my question is, anything else that can be causing the leak?

Bad seal, or rust-through on the steel tube.

I had the o ring go bad on the y pipe going to the water pump area.

so yeah replace the $2 oring and you should be good. i waited to long and it started to drain out after about 2 rides of weeping. the oring split in to two under the pressure.
