98 Indy 500 Classic

I have a small leak somewhere in the front heat exchanger on this sled.
Not sure if it's a hose or a pin hole, but it is on either the inside (under the engine), or the side. I know this because
after the sled runs a few minutes, if I look underneath, I see on the clutch side anti-freeze droplet form between the tunnel and heat exchanger.
NOTE: this is just a single drop or two. NOT a drip-drip-drip ... or a steady stream of antifreeze.

To put it in context, if I ride the sled 30 or 40 miles, I was noticing the bottle level drop and in or so.

Anyway, I was wondering if any work on this requires the engine out?
Or is there a way to drill out the rivets and pull it out from the underside in front of the track?

Thx in advance

I would pressure wash the engine bay.
Then tighten all the hose clamps.
But it could be coming from the water pump Mechanical seal.
