March PS Pump Leaking

Hey Guys;

I just installed a brand new March PS pump on my 302. I hooked it up, filled the fluid, bled it well (got a bunch of air to come out), took the car for a drive and...pump makes a lot of noise and is leaking fluid down the front crossmember and onto the floor. I checked my hose connections 3 times, even took them off once and reinstalled. Still leaking. It's difficult to tell where it is leaking from, but the front of the pump appears to be dry. The fluid runs down the pump from somewhere and when I wipe my hand across the bottom of the pump, it's wet there. The steering box connections are dry. I think its time to call Summit and let them know I have a faulty pump? Any suggestions? Thanks very much!

If you overfill a ps pump it'll keep chucking fluid out the fill cap.

Thanks Robert - per March instructions, the fluid level is to be just visible inside the filler neck. I didn't fill it above that.
