My thermostat is leaking. So instead of messing with the seals, I just bought a new one complete.

Cheaped out and got a Beck Arnley one. Looks good out of the box.

The engine block is wet below it and I have a strong external coolant leak that is leaving a puddles.

No other place looks likely as a leak location.

Scratch that - the engine block is wet and dirty there because of a stealthy power steering leak. Got in there with the borescope and managed to evaluate it.

Pulled the timing cover - it turns out its the water pump. JOY! (now with 50% less joy).
