PS Pump leak ?

I have been dealing with brakes and have manually moved the front suspension by pushing on brake drum to turn wheel to bleed brakes a few dozen times.

Fluid is leaking from PS pump doing this (read pooling on floor). Is this normal or are the pump seals bad?

Pump did not leak prior by just driving the car

Re: PS Pump leak ?

I've did the same (turn by hand) and never had it leak. Although probably not "a few dozen times" on one brake job ! lol Not sure, could be normal. I don't think you've hurt the seals. May've been over full ? Just keep an eye on it when you get running.
