Default stupid water pump

So I was working on my mom'* '95 today. She took it to a shop and they said that she needed a new water pump gasket. So I got one and put it on (only took me 3.5 hours!) I get it back together and start filling it with coolant....wouldn't you know, it'* leaking. I asked my teacher at school and he said it was comming from the weep hole. So now I have to take the whole thing back off and put a whole new water pump on. Fun, fun, fun!

Heck, if you HAVE to replace it, why not compare prices for any aftermarket pumps that might fit?
