Power Steering Leak - Reservoir? 1998 SS

My old pump/reservoir did not leak, but had an annoying little squeak from the front bearing when cold.

I replaced the pump, reused the old reservoir with the old seal and now I am getting a leak. It is a slow drip with the engine off, and a continuous leak with the engine running. It is dripping off the Aluminum mount under the pump right into the air exhaust of the alternator!

The high pressure fitting and the line back from the power steering cooler appear to be dry.

Any ideas...I want to have a plan before I pull the pump off again!

Thanks

I removed the pump and reservoir...sure enough pinched the o-ring seal between the reservoir and pump. At least I have gotten plenty of practice.
