    If you are referring to the 5/8 inch or 3/4 inch stainless hose adaptor towards the rear of the pump, this is the pressurized hose barb that provides water with pressure to the engine or intercooler for cooling. A picture would help
    If water is shooting out of this barb, it might mean that there is no water going into the intercooler/engine which means that there is no water going out the exhaust risers which means that if you run it like that the 4 inch rubber exhaust hose
    will most likely start to burn without this cooling water. Of course the engine will not like it either
    mmm??

    The u joint slips onto the male splined shaft. The slip yoke is not sealed at its outside diameter as this shaft has a bearing and seal to keep the water in the pump and depending on the model, assuming a 12 series a set of packings as well

    Looks like it's coming from bell housing at back of motor.
