Yes the pumps are different but only by degrees.  The automatic  
produces higher pressures that the standard and some folks say they  
wear out faster but I have no personal experience with that.  Might  
still work without any problems on a standard though.  Are you  
swapping out the whole engine or just the pumps because the pumps can  
be swapped no problem.  Hayden
