1940 Plymouth leaks water

My 40 Ply. leaks at the bottom of the timing chain cover. I replaced the timing chain cover gasket, but now it leaks even worse when the motor is running. When the motor is off it drips from the same place it did before.

I failed to mention that the engine is the original flat head 6 Cly. and my Ply. is a 4 Dr. sedan p-10 model.

Upon further close examination I discovered the drip was
coming from between the front of the engine and the plate
the T. chain cover bolts to.

If this is the case would the water gush out when the engine was running?

If I need to replace the gasket between the engine and this plate,do I have to remove the top T. chain pulley?

Could it be leaking any where else? The water pump gasket was replaced a short time ago. And never leaked after
that.

Autonut; ( thanks you for your help. )

If you don't get an answer here, I suggest you pose your question to the folks at the P15-D24 forum. That forum is devoted to Mopars of that era, and someone there will be happy to help you out.

1940 Plymouth leaks water

Thanks for the advice oldguy 48's. I am not familiar with how to access P15-D24 forum. I am not yet accustom to moving around in this site. Perhaps you could advise me on how to get to this forum.

Thanks again,
Autonut

Just go to Google, and type in P15-D24. Go to Forums, and it's self-explanatory from there. Feel free to join the forum. You'll be sure to enjoy it, and learn a lot about your car. You won't be disappointed.
