    If the pulley/shaft is the same it should bolt up. Just check all mounting places.

    Those pumps are the same. The brackets and pulley may be different, but the actual pump is the same.

    <font color=red> It is just as much fun to build it as it is to bash it</font color=red>

    The only thing that changed over the years was the fittings on the inlet and outlet and the valve. The valve can easily be swapped into the new pump from the old just by unscrewing the pressure outlet fitting. Of course, the pulleys and brackets may also need to be swapped. That same basic pump design is still being used today (with a few refinements).
