There is a bolt at the front of the hydraulic pump which is tight to  
the mounting bracket.  If you tighten the bolt, but you do not hog  
out a little metal in the mount to prevent it from contacting the  
mount, you will have hydraulic leaks as the bolt and mount work  
against each other under engine vibrations.  Went through two pumps  
when the car was new before i discovered this clearance issue.   
Haven't had a leak since although the pump has had a low level squeal  
at idle for years.
