Putting in a new water pump with my new engine rebuild.

Its been along time, is the hole for overflow, oil or air ?

See photo, which way does hole go in the photo, I think down but painted over any indication marks.

thanks

Yep. When the shaft bushing wears enough, the antifreeze will weep past the bushing then down and out. Otherwise the antifreeze would migrate out front behind the fan. You know what happens when IT "hits the fan".
