Question issues swapping '92 Power Steering pump for '99?

Car is a '92 SL1 206,487kms, leaking noisey pump, have found a '99 SL1 pump at a wrecker's, is this a suitable subject for a straight swap?

only way to tell is to get your old P/S pump bracket off the car and line up the holes on the new pump to see if they match.

Kinda a pain, I know!

Thanks for the reply 94SL2withphone, I was afraid that might be the only way to tell.
I've been getting by for years using additives to slow the leak, and have recently started using a new one, I can't for the life of me think of the name, they make oil additives also, comes in a big white bottle....

Anyway, I figured I'd just have done with it and swap the pump, but maybe I'm making more work for myself than I should?

Should bolt in no problem. As far as I know the pumps did not change at all for bolting in or hose hook up.

Bless you ssicarman! That is just what I needed to hear right now.

This is the original pump in the '92, I figure the hose connections will be frozen pretty good by now, and maybe I should start shooting some sort of lube on them now and for the next couple of days to try and loosen them up?
I also found a post on this that suggested the rubber mallet shock treatment on the wrench, rather than constant pressure applied which might break the hose connections or round them off, does this sound like a plan?

Now there is the rub, this '99 is a non EVO pump, my '92 SL1 has EVO.
Thanks for the help guys, I guess I could try to replace the seal in my old pump.
