Do the pumps look like they have the same fittings or is there on obvious difference in size of the fittings?

The most common is 3/8's.....but it could be 1/2 or 3/4's.
Do your check valves look like this?

On a lot of basic pumps people will use 3/8's for the pressure (center block port, dumps to hoses) and then use 1/4's for the return and slow down. If your check valve looks like the one in the picture then it's 3/8's. Just remember, if it will thread into the dump then it's 3/8's. The 1/2 and 3/4 check valves are usually female on both ends instead of male like the 3/8's.

I dont think that they will thread into the dump, it goes to a T bolt, first and then to the dumps, like i said the bottom side is bigger than the tope that goes into the 'T' bold, and the sow down, the one that goess direct into the "t bolt" is biggger than the one that goes into the slow down valve... well thats probley the best i can descibe them.. any more help that can be offered would be nice
