Default Strange problem

I have a 96L with a EJ205. Latley I noticed the PS pump leaking. In the process of trying to fix the leak I broke the pump casing. New pump later and I still have the same leak. It's not the High pressure line banjo bolt it's the fitting that the bolt screws into. The bolt is tight and the washer is dry but it's leaking out the top of the pump, just like the last pump. I'm using the stock rack from the L, maybe the pump is providing too much pressure and making it leak??? Beats me, anyone with ideas.

Also I noticed my oil pressure gauge reading over 100 psi when the car's worm but I don't think that's related but yet another problem I have to deal with.

make sure that bracket the bolt goes through is completely flat, we bent one on a toyota all trac once and it did the slow leak thing. i think this is what your talking about right?

re-read my description and it's not the best.

Banjo bolt from the steering lines get screwed into a fitting the top of the pump. It's not leaking from the washers on the line, it's leaking directly below that from the top of the pump. There is s fitting here that is normally not removed where it is leaking. I may just have to try some gasket sealer and see if that works.

The couple of Ls I've owned both leaked from the PS pump. I think it's "normal" for these cars. I just keep an eye on the fluid level, but it's nevAr gone down really fast.
