Default Upper Coolant elbow??

For lack of a better description, when I replaced my LIM gasket, I only ordered 1 elbow, the one that comes out of the LIM. I am now leaking a lot of coolant from the 'other elbow' just above that. Where can I find this? Part #?

This is a diagram of the tensioner that contains both coolant elbows. #3 is the one that goes into the LIM and #1 is to the left and down from there, if facing the car on the passenger side. Both of those elbows can be purchased at most auto parts stores on the Dorman "Help" cards. I can't think of a coolant elbow that is above #3. If it'* not one of these...can you take and post a picture of it?

yeah, the number 1 is what I am looking for. I guess my mental picture was that it was above the manifold elbow. I went to Oreilley auto and they didn't have jack! I will try another parts store tomorrow. Thanks!!

Pepboys and Autozone carry them around here. Gives you a couple of places to start.
