Cam bearings are not common and I would be surprised if it was. If it is, by driving it, it will trash the head. I would disconnect the belt and see if it goes away.

Ford Saginaw pumps are notoriously noisy power steering pumps. I have not had any that were not noisy. This is especially true when turning the steering wheel without the vehicle in motion.

It sounds like you may have a bearing race out of spec in your front hub assembly. Check for bearing play by pulling with your hands on each tire--if there is a clunking noise---replace the bearing.
