    Hey guys i have a E57H that is pushing fluid out and it's quite a bit... when i fill the pump i make sure the ram is all the way down... then i take the little plug/breather out of the top.. it's 7/16 size and fill the pump to almost the top... but it is leaking the fluid from the breather i am almost certain... i don't know when it does this but it runs down the front of the pump and it actually has gotten on my hood i assume from shooting out of it... am i doing something wrong?

    If you're filling it to the top then you're over filling it. Should be no more than an inch and a half to the top max. A plastic wire tie makes a very handy "dip stick" to check it.
