The pumps in the pre-87 5k differ from the pumps in the later Type 44 cars
(including the V8). I think the difference is that there is a smaller
section to the pump for the brake boosting function. Anyway, the two seal
kits are for the two different pumps. I have several pumps (the yard
includes an '87 5ktq, a 200q20v and a V8) and the pumps from all three are
the same. The brackets differ, as do the pulley alignments for the belts.
The V8 uses a flat serpentine belt for the same accessories that require
three belts on the I5s. But the pumps are interchangeable. I have one
rebuilt on the shelf for the next emergency failure and one to be resealed
that came off my 20v last fall.
