    I belive '80 & up is the same. I think in '80 is when they switched from SAE fittings to metric fittings, for the hoses. And I think that is the only difference.

    I think it's '82 that the new fittings started.

    Wrong again Tim, when they sorta started changing the body style in '80, the gear boxes have metric threads. I know, because when I changed the 250 inline 6 in my '80 to a 350, I had to find a '80 or newer pump, because the threads were metric on the hose ends.
