Saginaw power steering pump upgrade

Ok my old Ford power steering pump is dying and I was looking into the option of upgrading to a Saginaw pump. I have see recommendations to do this upgrade but not very many details. Such as:
1) Which Saginaw pump would be the easiest to install on the 7.3 powerstroke engine?
2) Who carries these pumps?
3) Do you continue to run ATF or switch to power steering fluid since this pump also supplies a hydroboost system?

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the feed back. I called these guys a couple of days ago. They advised me to stick with the stock Ford pump!

Any ideas on the PS pump part number that has a ford bolt pattern?
What about the fluid after the switch to saginaw pump. ATF or PS fluid?
Thanks!

Talk to PSC about the Hydra Assist I have had mine for 3 years with No problems. The truck turns with 1 finger and the cool part is you don't need a steering dampener as the Rack works like a steering dampener.

Normally with hydro assist the turning is pretty slow, ( in my case off road obstacle course type stuff)

How is the resistance when your trying to turn fast?

There is a little more resistance when I turn fast but I will live with that over not being able to turn at all with the stock setup.

I wanna say the 6.9 vans had them. And of course some olders. You'll have to either make a custom bracket or modify your current PS bracket. I've got a pump laying in my shop, but no extra bracket to try and work with. Around here the JY want around $200 for the bracket off a superduty
