94 LT1 power steering reservoir getting hot

Hello I have a 94 Firehawk LT1 and I just changed the power steering pump because it was moaning and hard to turn.
Well after driving ten miles it seems that the reservior is very warm and spitting alittle fluid around the cap.

Could there be other parts in the rack and pinion area I missed.

Did you let it burp all the air out. Lift the front end off the ground. And take the cap off. And turn the wheel left and right for a min or two.
