If damian is right, which i think he is, this is what you're looking for

I'd take the old part and compare, and you'll know if you're right or not.
Any oriellys will order it in for you without charging, at least they did
when i worked there 8 years ago :P



That appears to be for a 1994 T-bird LX, Craig has an 88 T-bird with the 2.3L turbo engine.  1 of the parts that comes up there:

BWD S26764 - Power Steering Pressure Switch | O'Reilly Auto Parts

   BWD S26764 - Power Steering Pressure Switch | O'Reilly A...
BWD - Power Steering Pressure Switch. Part #: S26764. UPC: 699029604889. . Brand: BWD. Manufacturer: BWD.  
View on www.oreillyauto.com Preview by Yahoo  
 does cross-ref (via multiple cross-refs) to the part number Craig listed, F0SZ-something...

 (formerly Borg-Warner) makes a crap load of parts for old model 
cars/trucks.  When they were still Borg-Warner their quality was pretty 
good, not so sure anymore.  Pretty sure this stuff is from South China 
Sea somewhere...

Also, I see a lot of places that this part is listed as a Power Steering Switch. Not sure why...

To Craig:  If you know where this part is at on the car, pull it off and take it with you to any major parts store, THAT will improve your odds of getting the right part dramatically.  Most of the old timers @ parts stores can look at it and know exactly what the replacement part is, or at least what to look for in their computer system.
