Hi Art,
This is a fairly common issue with new pumps.  One thing you can do is get 
longer bolts of the right size, to replace the 5 it has, from a hardware 
store with nuts to put on the back.  This 
gives it some more strength then the pot metal threads.  Keep the torque 
even. If it is a good 
pump, usually the leaks will stop.  I would lean away from 
overtightening as it might squish and tear the diaphragms, but 
even torque is what you want.   Personally I have a stash of AC 
original pumps and I think they are superior to aftermarket, but they are 
old and hard to get a hold of.
And ignore nasty ol' codgers who complain that something has been
