Easy- Saginaw pump. Several Bronco vendors carry the bracket and the rest
of the parts you need. Wild Horses shows them on this page:
http://www.wildhorses4x4.com/26.asp. If you don't want to buy a new
Delphi (what Saginaw is called these days) pump you can get a junkyard
used pump or buy a rebuilt pump to fit an Econoline van (they used
Saginaw pumps). They all look more or less externally identical. If you
get one to fit a mid eighties Chevy 3/4 ton diesel pickup without air
conditioning, or one for a mid eighties Linoln diesel car it will have
the extra return port on the reservoir can for the hydroboost line. It's
all bolt on so it's a simple swap, assuming you have stock vee belts.

Power steering pump Question

I am going with KRC. They make an incredible pump that is widely used in NASCAR. It is incredibly efficient and flows a ton of fluid. You cannot believe how light this unit is. I bought an aftermarket resevoir from ebay. It was an aluminum resevoir from a NASCAR team. The link to the one I bought is

They also make a cast iron unit, but the aluminum is lighter and stays cooler.
