Blown power sterring hose fitting???

I had blown out a fitting in the power steering supply hose on my 95 4X4 and to get bye I used the adapter from my 87 4X2. It is difficult to explain but my truck now "sounds" bad at times, mostly under turning loads. Not just the annoying Ford power steering whine but worse, if it's possible.

I am getting the correct hose assembly but I am curious; is the '87 supply rate or size different? What better pumps are available and from where?

It was wierd as the thread size of the adapter's male connection to the pump was smaller on the '87 but the hose size seemed the same in the two trucks as the existing '95 hose threaded into the '87 adapter on the hose side of the adapter.

It took a beer or two to get the fittings to work and no leaks at all. As I said not for nothing, I'm just curious.
