Automotive tire Hood Automotive lighting Cloud Bicycle part

Hello friends

I just changed the power steering pump on my son's car. Everything is good, except this new pump has an extra outlet port. I believe it to be for a presure switch. This car already has this presure switch inline. Am I correct? The port is for a presure switch? Also since I do not need it, how do I plug it?

Sure you got the correct pump?

Assuming you already have used the two lines and now looking at a third outlet.

Both options available at my parts store have all 3 ports. I believe it is for hydro boost braking, which I also don't have. Would anyone know the thread pitch and size plug I would need?

How does it compare to the original pump?

Rock Auto is showing a manufacturing cut-off date of 12/2002 for pumps.

Also, where is this port located? Your picture is too tight to really tell.

When did Ford use hydroboost? News to me but it means nothing. Maybe on duratec in another car.

Not going to be able to use a simple bolt and washer as the hole is bigger above the threads. Need some sort of a sleeve there.

In this view (click for larger) you can see:
two plugs - smaller black circle facing, and hex plug on right
two ports - pressure with white shipping plug on left and return on top

Hydroboost never used on Focus but basic pump design was used on other applications that may have.
