Just realized that it's not OEM. Ugh. Supposedly it's the same and is re-engineered with a better shaft, but what good is that if the pressure hose doesn't even fit. FWIW the two pumps looked identical.

Just confirming that the pressure hose is actually supposed to bolt all the way down before I send the pump back for OEM and do the job again....
If you started with an L30 and went to an L20 then you may have hose connection issues. Watch this. Also, the L20 is the one prone to breaking which is why the L30 came out.
