keep in mind while your looking that any bendix hb will work. The difference will be the mount plate that can be purchased or made. They are in the newer trucks as well as ford diesels and motor homes.

ok thanks for the info, really wanting something to just bolt into place...i know it sounds bad but i have alot of custom projects now...lol

Not really a custom project, most reman units come without the bracket. It's held on with one nut around the cylinder bore. I rebuilt one as a spare for my truck that came off of a sd ford

I've got a HB unit, and lines from a 1999 Astro van if that will work. I was selling everything for $150 but if you just want the HB unit i'll do $100 shipped. PM me if interested.

i have a set minus the good lines and cooler.
pump AND BRACKET for vortec 5.7, master cylinder, hydroboost unit, brake pedal, i bought the whole p/s bracket with the pump so the swap would be as simple as afew bolts to unbolt the whole bracket and have correct pump with ease! since that pulley can be a PITA to remove to unbolt the bracket. so what easier than just swap the whole bracket out ;)
i took the hydroboost and pedal assembly from a 3500 railroad truck 454, and i got the hydroboost power steering pump and bracket off of a 98 c1500 5.7 suburban i think.
i was going to put it on my truck but since im not hauling a big trailer yet i really dont need the brakes right now and i just need other stuff for my truck like afew balljoints and alignment mostly right now. as well as tires eventually. so guess i could part with my whole setup.
i wont split up tho since i have no use for other parts 275bucks shipped for everything. only thing you need is new lines for the unit and maybe a cooler for it most the lines on the setup have been cut since the factory lines stripped when trying to remove so i had to cut them. but its fine because ive been told you should always use new lines to prevent leaks. thats what i planned on doing.
