OK, lets put this thing to bed.
First of all, I want to thank everyone that replied to my post. I learned something from each of you.
I never did get the bracket holding the pump and reservoir off. I did discover a 6mm Allen that looked like it may have held the bracket on from the back and gotten from under the car. I didn't have the right mixture of sockets and swivels to get it off so I said screw it and went to plan C. Trying to follow the Pelican Parts procedure, I realized that 4 bolts held the top of the pump unit on the base. My leak was coming from the main seal so, I just unbolted the top of the pump, carefully removed it and rebuilt the top half of the pump. I put the whole thing back together and so far, it's not leaking. I really wanted to change that 3 inch piece of hose under the reservoir but, I only had so much patience and had to give this technique a shot.
Thank you all for your help.
