Email Philip Valentine. I know Philip fools with alot of steering boxes. He is a moderator on Team Chevelle. He can tell you exactly what to look for, and possibly give you some pointers. His name on the board is 64elcamino, and he moderates the Chevelle Tech section.
Many Used Parts for Chevelles, and Camaros- Just ask!

There is a torson bar inside the valve that will make it feel funny when there is no pump boost.
I'd put it on and try it.
Be careful around the valve end, there are lots of parts inside there.
You need the coupler for a power box the manual coupler is a different size. And there are early and late power boxes that have different sizes.
The pitman arm is a larger splined shaft for power to handle the load.
