Power steering question!

We recently changed the Master Cylinder and Hydraulic Brake lines on my 1999 International 3000 RE bus, and immediately after that job was complete I noticed that the power steering reservoir was filled with foam and overflowing. We tried bleeding the power steering line but that has not helped.

I noticed that the Hydro-Max Brake Booster also assists with the power steering. Therefore, I'm wondering if air from the brake line somehow got into the power steering line? I'm also wondering if I need a new Power Steering Pump or a new Power Steering Booster?

Probably a leak in the lines/fittings sucking in the air

Thanks for your reply, but we haven't seen any leaks, what is a good way to test the lines/fittings for leaks?
