Sorry to reply to my own thread, but thought I'd put closure on this thread.  SPOB sent a beautifully rebuilt pump to replace the --- and I still can't believe this --- porous original pump.  Wasn't just a problem with my housing leaking through a crack that isn't visible.  When the car is all the way down, the old pump would take a couple minutes to get the car to rise.

Now it's a few seconds.  Martin says my old pump wasn't getting to specified pressure.
