I have a 302 engine I'm rebuilding and remembered I had a extra powersteering pump, its from a 1987 ford F-150.

My 1997 explorers steering is really still and has some easy spots when turning and warm days is fine.

I took a glance at my X's pump and so far everything looks the same on the 87 pump, I'm just wondering if theirs any pressure difference or bolt patterens

Assuming you have the 4.0 OHV engine, yes they are probably the same pump .. in general, there are probably only a handful of different pump in the US auto market. The one you have is the "P" series Saginaw pump, used extensively (to the death) by the big three automakers. There are slight differences in mounting and reservoir dimensions and configurations (some came with a remote reservoir) but these should be quite obvious.

In contrast, the 4.0 SOHC engine received the series "TC" pump.
