Default power steering, any experts?

or at least any knowledge?

I want to mate my 92 v6 power steering pump with my 85 rack, now the odd thing is that the v6 power steering pump has an extra widget built in, and i cannot find out what it is or what it does.. the main part of the pump is a normal vane type pump and looks to be pretty similar in spec to the 85 pump (and a 1990 and 1994 golf pump) but it has an additional gallery with a cam lobe acting on a pair of plungers..

anyone know what its for?

BTW due to its location in the V I cannot fit the 85 pump.. or the golf pumps..
1985 Type 81 2 door 2.8 V6
1983 Golf GTI track weapon
1977 Scirocco G60
1968 Sand Rail
2006 A4 2.0 TDI Avant = DEAD due to oil pump failure.. then alive.. then DEAD due to cam belt tensioner failure! and ALIVE again!!!
