Is the pump housing shaped fairly similarly to the old one it replaced and that goes for where the two hydraulic ports are located as well. If so and you didn't swap hoses around but kept them in the same orientation chances are fairly good that its going to be the same shaft as previously used. Probably not proper procedure perhaps but if it were me I would just make sure oil is able to run by gravity down into the pump body so its being lubricated and then with the drive shaft on the upper stub, start it up at low idle of the engine and listen for any noises that don't sound right and if none, then try the hydraulic control to see if you get any action. I would think that the worse that could happen is its milling around and trying to push oil into the reservoir but really can't grasp hold of more oil so nothing much would happen.
