Help! Pentosin Leak - '89 200 FWD

I replaced the high pressure line between the hydraulic pump and the
steering rack two days ago.  (Thanks to the list for recommending Carlsen's

hose jacket when the steering was turned against lock limit of the rack.

I have checked for visible leaks since replacement with engine running,
steering at lock -- no drips.

My problem-  a small (approx.. 3-5 Tablespoons) puddle of pentosin on the
garage floor formed overnight for the last two nights.  I can't find the

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

PS - I think the bomb is bad, according to the pedal test anyway, I've been
waiting for a better "cash time" to replace.
