Power steering pump (UK)

The power steering pump on my Audi 100 1.8 (4 cyl) '85 has developed a 
serious leak after remains of the fan belt became entangled around it. 
I found a good looking replacement off a 5 cyl engine but noticed that 
they are slightly different. The pumps are identical apart from the two 
halves are aligned differently, with mine having a green tag and the 
other a red tag. My pump is found at the bottom of the engine next the 
crank pulley. 
As I am going to continue my search around various breakers yards, are the 
coloured part number tags the correct way of differentiating the two 
types of pump? 

Thanks in advance
