Well yesterday (Saturday) I finally got my pump fitting, and for the life of me I could not get the line on, finally I pulled the clamp off the top radiator hose from the radiator side, I had the wife hold it clamped up toward toward the motor, and it made it much easier to install the line, but then I kept having a leak off the small fitting on the fan side, but the line that goes to the rack, I added pipe sealant, and it still leaked, so I reinstalled my stock line and it quit , refilled it, turned the wheels back and forth and topped it off and all good to go, now I just need to know what an fitting that is and I will order a new one and get the other line installed down the road ,but for now it's good !

Any possibility that you put too much fluid in the bottle? If you overfilled your reservoir, it will leak out of cap or anywhere it can relieve pressure.
