btw its no where near the same design.
that picture is the pump for the 83-89 pump.....the one on my truck is totally different than that pictured....

this is what mine somewhat looks like: (cant verify the pump itself, but this is the top identical)


this is what the pump itself looks like: (picture pulled from Auto Zone's website)

i wonder if you could adapt the '97 pump to the SOHC?

Does your pump Beard have an external reservoir?

My pump looks like the '97 pump with the exception of the fact that the return hose connection points straight down, not back like that one. However, that's part of the reservoir and not really the pump per-se.

Saginaw pump swaps are popular in the early Bronco (and later ones for that matter) community.

Probably worth it just to get rid of the whine!

If it fits, it might be great. All of those other vehicles it's suggested for are bigger which means they might have pumps with more "oopmph".

Yes, oomph is a technical/engineering term. It's a unit of measure chosen to honor Hieronymous K. Oomph, the discover of hydraulic power steering. The more oomphs your system has, the easier it is to steer...
