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

There's a green tag on the rebuilt pump I bought from Blau last spring for 
my 200q20v and there's a green tag on the pump I rebuilt for my 5ktq.  They 
look the same to me except that the one I got last spring for nearly $300 
has a nice, clean, black paint job.  The one I rebuilt a couple years ago 
for about $25 in parts is mostly unpainted.
