Power steering lines and other inconsistencies

OK- I know Rover is consistently inconsistent but this one is interesting. Replacing my steering box on the 94 and the pressure line from the pump to the box is actually apparently the NTC6790 which was allegedly only used until 1992 instead of the NTC9099 that is supposed to be there. It appears to be that way originally and the ends on the 9099 will fit, but are a different diameter inlet and seal design.
Anyone else run into these things that all the Rover parts books and Microcat etc all claim different? Now I can see how people can still get the 'wrong' stuff even though they order the "right" stuff.
I guess I'll stick the one that matches (same as Disco I) back on instead of what three different books say is the right one.

Yes Had similar problems loads of times. Regardless of what is quoted ie part used on until 1992 etc if Landrover had supply problems with the new part or ran out of stock etc they would revert to old part. I also have a Discovery that according to the chassis number was built after Landrover sold it and getting the right part for that is an absolute nightmare as there were a lot of changes on SII discoveries in 2000/2001
