AzTJ Was the res attached properly? I don't remember if they are pressed on or bolted together. If the new unit came with a res on it, it might have been improperly assembled.

By the way, I believe the leak is coming from the reservior box or one of the lines.

My solution: Lucas power steering fluid with stop leak additive. Any experience with this? I've heard people using this and the leak is permanently fixed.

hedonist Question: Whenever I remove the power steering cap, there seems to be built up pressure inside the reservoir. Do I need a new cap or is pressure common when removing the PS cap?

hedonist ^Thanks triple88a. You're always helpful.

The leak is right around the PS box. Is there way it could leak under the box or next to the thing it's connected to?
Here is a pic of the area. It drips onto the top of the axle then to the ground. Any ideas of where it is?

Triple88a shut off the rig and wipe it all down so you can see where the leak is coming from. I'd imagine a hose or something else is cracked or not on right.
