Coolant leak at manifold stub

I just got the engine back together and in my Mustang last fall, got it running, then tucked it away for the winter. I was under it not long ago and found antifreeze under it. I tracked it down to the stub for the waterpump on the manifold. I have an Edelbrock Performer 390 and I had to install the stub when I bought it. I think I may have been to conservative with the silicone so as to not make a mess. Anyway, how do I get it out to seal it again? Or does someone have another way to seal it off?

Thanks.

Re: Coolant leak at manifold stub

Those stubs as you call them are tapperd so you really don't have to use anything but I use that white plumbers tape. Wrap it around a couple of times at the upper side of the stub and reinstall it. Shouldn't leak any more.
