Actually the ratio deals more with the steering gear box moreso than the pump. Typically a GM pick-up pump will fit another without much trouble. The difference comes from whether or not the vehicle you're stealing the pump from has Hydro-Boost (pump will have two return lines), or not. If yours doesn't, and the useable pump doesn't, you're in business.
