Ford power steering whine fix!

I hate how the ford power steering pumps whine especially on our cars. I fix that with a saginaw pump swap. I found that a 99 astrovan has a pump that best fits my car. The pulley that I used with the correct offset is from a 2000 gmc envoy. You will also need that horse shoe shaped bracket to make this work. Here are some pictures of the swap.

I have read of the 70's pump is a solution. Kind of expensive without a core. I am a little confused the first picture shows a pump with built in reservoir. Later one's are not. The "horseshoe" comes from what. Maurice

Sorry guys I was posting this in a hurry so I wasn't able to get more detailed.
The picture with the two pumps shows a stock pump and a ford van pump from 89. This ford van pump might fit a 5.0 engine but did not fit my 2.3. The pump I ended using was a 99 astrovan pump. The horse shoe is an adapter that is needed to make it all bolt up. Some fords came with this adapter from factory but good luck finding one.
I'll post more pics. The swap is already done and it made a hell of a difference. No whine and it steers like if the wheels where off the ground.

I paid less than $50 for the ford van pump that I will be using on my 68 f100 that has a 5.0 swap. The astro van pump I got used from a junk yard including the remote reservoir less than $40

I took these pics this morning. The astrovan remote reservoir with a welded bracket that mounts to the back of the alternator lower bolt. Castrol trans fluid was used to top it off.

Wow your engine bay is really clean! And that's really cool, I guess I should go scrap shopping to see what I can find.

I'll post more pictures of the fittings and pressure hose when I get a chance.

I know it's not a mustang but it is mustang powered. 90 mustang 5.0 running gear in my 68 f100. Just finished doing the same saginaw pump swap but with a different canister. I like my fords quiet from the engine. Steers like butter now lol I wanted to share this to show the 5.0 guys.

I was under the car setting up some air ride components and snapped some pics of the rack pressure hose and new fittings.
