Most common problem causing that is A. loose belt B. bad pump or C air in the system. If it's the original pump, we can rule out the belt. Are you sure the air is all out of the system? Might be worth a try to jack the front up and with the engine running and cycle the wheel from stop to stop several times. If it's air, that should get the air out.
