If you can verify that it's a NV7 instead of a N40 (see here, post #8), then I've the complete unit. PM me.

ok I have the NV7 pump with the actuator/sensor/ flow valve in the back...I DO NOT want to use this style of pressure/flow valve and want go to the N40 style pump and pressure/flow valve as I don't need the variable assist, and electronic part has been removed off computer...I am using a reprogrammed computer and a street and performance wiring harness and have no pigtail/plug in for it anyway. ok a couple more questions.... 1. Does the N40 pressure/flow valve have the same size threads/hole size as the NV7 's 90* banjo fitting where the p.s. high pressure hose screws in...I am assuming it is but u no what that does 2. Does the replacement pumps that comes from the auto parts houses come with the pressure/flow valve or does a person have to remove and re-use the 1 out of the pump that is being swapped out ? I am using adapter fiitings and s.s. braided line and AN hose ends and am wondering if I am gonna have to order another adapter fitting...thanks for all the info so far

No worries. That's why i post stuff like that up at the time. the hell if I'm ever going to be able to actually remember it. Get's to the point when you learn and forget more than...I digress.

Yeah, you transferred the access bracket from the roadie so you got all the roadie goodies, including the NV7. I doubt your Ford has the potentiometer, etc... installed :D, so you'll want to do similar to what i did and just swap in the N40 innards onto your existing pump. You'll need that 30mm deep well socket.

Your questions, in order:
1. yes. There is no difference between the pumps, so the fittings are all tapped the same.
2. Not certain, but would think comes w/. WAY too much liability leaving that up to joe citizen. However, admittedly I haven't ever used a parts store unit, so someone else could offer a definitive answer.

well I went to oriellys ordered all 3 pumps so I could look at all 3 side by side...my biggest concern was if they came with the flow valves or not(oriellys couldn't tell me and their pix didn't show...ive always found used pumps that had all parts on them, 1st gen pump style) cause I didn't want to have to reuse the 1 I have cause I didn't want to use or need that style valve and gives me a lil more working room down behind the pump. my other concern was if the fitting size in the non electric flow valve was the same size as in the electric flow valve with the 90* banjo fitting...it is the same size and seal type...I am using a 5/8 (16mm x 1.5) steel adapter that converts to -6 AN 90* swivel hose end for braided line to my '85 t-bird power rack...I really wasn't looking forward to having to order a new fitting(s), change a bunch of stuff or spend more money here at Christmas time...thanks !
