New battery leaking

Anyone have any ideas about this one?
Installed a new pertronix ignition and coil. Pulled out the ignition control unit and resistors as the new coil has 1.5 ohm resistance built in. That done, when I start the car my new battery leaks like it's under pressure. Not only that, my steering fuid resevoir leaks too as if under pressure too. This never happen before. Battery leak seems dangerous.

That might be a charging issue. The steering fluid reservoir would have nothing to do with that. It probably needs to be resealed.
