[200q20v] Leaking hydraulics; not a hose or the rack.

I'd bet your pump is leaking from one of the "mushroom" caps on the 
underside.  This leak, if that's what it is, will just get bigger and 
bigger  until suddenly it takes a reservoirful of Pento$in to go five 
miles.  There supposedly is no reseal kit for the 200q20v pump, but, to me, 
it looks as though that pump is identical to the one on the later 5ktq's, 
for which there is a reseal kit that costs ~$25.  A remanned pump is close 
to $300.
