In putting my car (http://www.rhoadescamaro.com/build ) together, got to the point yesterday, where it was time to add PS fluid.

As my car was originally manual steering, I'd bought this pump:
http://www.classicindustries.com/camaro/parts/a6113.html

Got the lines all cinched up and added a couple ounces of fluid, turned the wheel back and forth a bit (car in the air, not running), no apparent problem.  So added about half a quart...
and it began POURING onto the garage floor!

Fortunately it was in a single stream, so was able to put the bottle right back underneath and collect a lot of it.  Still a big waste and mess.

The leak wasn't coming from any of the hose fittings - it appeared to be from between the main body of the pump, and the outer shell, which seems to be how the reservoir attaches.  So much for a quality remanufactured unit!

Has anyone here had any luck with an alternative source for this kind of part?

Thanks!!

I bought a Cardone pump at the local NAPA store. Not a problem so far. BTW it was a complete pump only missing the pulley so it was basically plug and play.
