Toolman- Seems like some time back I read a post somewhere saying that some of the leaks that looked like the weep hole was really something else just above the pump that was leaking. Seems like it was a hose or fitting. I may be way off base but it sort of stuck with me. Might try a search here and a couple of other forums like ATV Nation, etc. Let us know what you find or if it really is the pump. It might have been Mudcon that posted it.
