It would leak from the belt side because of the o ring. That oring should be a bitch to put on. I had to stretch mine to get it onto it's mount. Be sure to take some sandpaper to the oring groove, to make sure it's smooth to press in.
What about if the O ring felt a lil lose or big should I buy another one or is their times that it comes a lil big? Will sanding it make the trick it just feels is to big and no need to stretch like every one mentioned?

Is it the original oring? Replace it if so. Can't hurt to replace it if it came with the new pump, either. Loose is no good for a gasket

Yeah, that O ring groove looks like it needs a good cleaning.

Just an observation, why would you use a torque wrench to loosen a bolt -- unless you were checking the torque on a fastener you just installed. Also, when done with the wrench loosen the pressure on it, set the torque below lowest value. Second thing, when you spent all this time and trouble to remove a component don't you think it is worth the several extra time to ensure that the sealing area is clean and not damaged and the extra few dollars to replace the old seal?
