Ya, I just looked around the HPOP and it looks more wet around there than anywhere else. I'll order the o-rings and see where it gets me. Any other parts right there that should be replaced while in there?

The pump doesn't need to be removed to replace the o-rings. Just make sure that you have a torque wrench or you could strip out the threads in the pump and make really expensive junk really fast.
