    I did as you said and made sure everything went in straight and even put a new o ring on the cover just in case and as soon as the motor caught it started pouring out the 3 o'clock position again.

    I just thought about this. Could a partial blockage in one of the cooling lines be causing too much back pressure and forcing fluid through that o ring?

    maybe but not likely i would check the return line fitting to make sure its not cracked at the case i have seen that also and in makes it look like its the servo it sits right above it at the 3 o clock position

    The only problem is I watched it come pouring out of that spot and the fitting for the return line wasn't leaking.
