Will, I would be installing the power steering at the same time as you are doing the motor, the box will be so much easier to replace at this time, as for the brackets I believe that any 68 / 67 small block brackets will work, sorry the 6 cyl don't come close, the next thing is to get the right pump, as the depth of the pully is important, don't forget to get the crankshaft pulley. If you can, scoop every thing you need from one car.
As far as the box goes I would suggest you find a box from a 68 camaro, least amount of hassels. Try to get the Pitman arm with it as well, as it is different from the standard box. Half the fun of owning a classic is the search for the parts. I don't think there is much difference between the heater cores.
