PS pump reseal

My PS pump developed a leak a few days ago, and I have the Bentley manual
with rebuilt instructions. I ordered the seal kit and 8 new "X"-caps. The
pump was working just fine before the leak and was still working fine after
it started leaking. The shaft seal seems dry, the leak seems to come from
either one of the X-caps or the connection between front and rear pump
halves. Do you think this reseal will be sucess or failure? I have read
about pressure valves that stopped working, but I guess I don't need to
replace this because my pump was working just fine before, right?

Thanks a lot,
E. Spangen
