ABS Unit Questions

I had my ABS pump fail on my 1988 Toronado Trofeo. I DID find a used one online from a salvage yard at a good price.

Here is my issue now: I have a hydraulic line (rubber) from the booster to the pump itself. The new one (it came without the booster), has a steel line. Can it be made to work, anyway? Or am I back at square one?

Additionally, if anyone has any tips on making this job easier, please share.

Some threads before I told the story from my ABS pump problems. YouŽd read it?
Why you dont change the e-motor only? It is monted with two screws and an o-ring at the body only. So youŽll have no problems with any rubber or steel tubes.
IŽm able to change the motor in 5 Minutes. Little tricky but it works. You need a half pint DOT3 after that.

Alright, so after some digging and a trip to the salvage yard, I found an accumulator from a '90 Bonneville that seems to be the same, and has the steel line between it and the master cylinder. Now, before I dig into this, my only question is are there any compatibility issues with the units that use the steel line versus the high pressure hose? Do the brake lines hook up the same? Does it bolt in the same? I can't spot any issues myself, but if anyone knows of any potential hiccups I may encounter, please share.

I'd love to have this project be a success. Then I can move on to restoring the rest of the car.

And the replacement of only the e motor os possible, since this piece has it, but...just in case it needs it all...
