E36 different power steering pumps

right now I fitted a m50 power-steering pump onto my m52 engine with a m50 power steering hose - but the pumps starting to go and was wondering if I put on a m52 pump will I need a new m52 power steering hose or are the hollow bolts the same?

just for anyone else looking I figured it out

This is the m50 setup

Basically, this is one thing someone doing a m52 swap into m50 chassis needs to be aware of because it makes m52 PS pumps unswappable unless you change steering rack and pressure hose assembly also to m52. No swap thread mentioned this as far as I know.

Currently, I cut the mounting area, with a grinder, by a few centimeters so that my m50 PS pump would align up with the m52 fan belt. I messed it up a bit and the belt sqweeks cause I didn't cut it the perfect length.

I am going to try to use the intake hose for the m50 pump, and somehow attach it to the current m50 pressure hose, since the intake hose on the m50 bolt matches the size of the m52 (M16X28). Then I'll be able to use the m52 PS pump and get rid of the sqweek.
