Post IH 2444 Coolant leak in strange location

My 1970 IH 2444 started leaking coolant.* It's not leaking from the radiator, the hoses nor the water pump.* But I see it streaming down a*tube right below the alternator.* This tube has a nut on the bottom, but I'm a little confused as to the problem.* *I guess the leak could be coming from the engine oil cooler, but I don't know what the problem could be nor do I know the purpose of*the 8 inch tube with a nut is at the end.**

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Mark. I'm not trying to run you off, but you might get more play on a vintage tractor tech forum. This forum caters to the Light Line passenger vehicle crowd. Some folks here do own tractors too, but mostly Cub Cadets. Getting your question in front of the right eyeballs will get you a good answer sooner. My other suggestion is to post some good pictures if you can to help illustrate your situation. Good luck.

Suggestion: Post a photo of the problem area.

Does this 2444 have the IHC 4-152 engine?

If so, this is probably the coolant pipe that connects the cylinder head to the water pump housing.
There is an o-ring at each end that can deteriorate.
Remove pipe, clean up pipe and engine and replace o-rings.
One end is attached with a clamp held with one bolt.
The other end just sits in the housing.

Photo.......?
