How do you swap the pressure side connection casting? Note the old one in the foreground. There's no thread in the new pump - so is that supposed to be pressed out and in? Read a bunch of threads on ps pump replacement and noone mentioned this little conundrum.
Note: This is for my 96 fwb.

Take a close look. The old pump in foreground has fluid pressure output bung and pressure sensor connector. The circa 2015 reman which I've had on the shelf has nothing but a smooth bore. It looks like that piece needs to be pressed on off and on.
Edit: now i'm thinking just another ****ed up reman where they forgot to press on the bung/casting pressure side casting.
Edit2: and if you could think they would **** it up in mexico, it's no surprise they would **** it up even more in china with the cardone garbage. This is a sad state of affairs.

Thanks for weighing in babywag. This is perplexing to me, no threads inside reman casting.
Edit: Ah, I pulled the piston and spring out to reveal the threads. Question: Do I pull the C-clips off the end before unbolting the casting?
Thx in advance!

Hard to tell from pic but it looks like some form of plug in there. Very odd. If it was me I'd try to see if I could remove it.

Yep, that's the plunger and spring which I didn't realize comes out. Last pic I turned it over and it fell out, revealing the threads within. I let it sit on the ps on the past pic for reference.

Thanks for your help. It's always nice to have someone look at something with a different set of eyes.
