hot power steering pump

Got a crazy one... new rebuilt motor, started for first time, have not hitthe street yet, and on the initial startup the power steering pump got so hot it was steaming, and I couldnt touch it because it was so hot.
belts not to tight, full of fluid, brand new, and in line perfectly with other pulleys. im stumped.
any ideas why its running so hot??

Is it circulating? Meaning, does the steering actually feel as if it has power-assist? Sounds like its just circulating internally through the relief valve, that would make it hot but I wouldn't think to the point of steaming...

Did you ever figure it out? I am having the exact same problem on my 1967 El Camino 350SBC with stock power steering.
