Opinion about repair

So I'm going to Deals Gap on Tuesday. I live in NYC and will be towering my Gen1 there. I noticed that the bike's waterpump likely went bad since i have a small leak of antifreeze coming out of the side of the pump; its been like that since the start of the season. I purchased all of the parts needed to do the repair, but work life and kids haven't allowed me time to repair it and i just forgot it was an issue. Now the question is, would you attempt the repair before the trip or would you just ride it with the small leak until you return from the trip? My fears are, i do the repair and screw it up and cant take the bikes. If you've done water pump repairs you'll know there's a lot of unconventional hammering and banging methods used to get the new parts in, if you dont have the special tools. And if you know how bad water pumps work, you can have a small leak forever until one day is not so small anymore and the bike becomes unrideable. Whay would you do. Gamble on the repair or gamble on it will be fine?
