My guess, the reason you replaced the pump is due to pump whine. If you are satisfied that you purged the system entirely of air after you replaced the pump, and believe me there is a procedure, and you checked with Ford parts department to see if there wasn't a change in the power steering hose design, my suggestion would be for you to replace the steering gear assembly at this point. Air is entering causing cavitation which causes the pump to whine.
