manual to power steering -not stock-

I would like to convert my 69 camaro BBC from manual to power steering, but, I am using a short water pump (and that has to stay). I've been doing a search online for which brackets and pulley I needs but I'm confused...can anyone leads me in the right direction for brackets/pulley combos that will work?

'67 and '68 Camaro's were short water pumps. You should be able to use those brackets.
The only thing you will have to consider is what harmonic balancer you have.

If you have an 8" balancer you will need to use brackets for a '67 or '68 302/350 as they were the only ones to use an 8" balancer for those years.

Alan Grove Components also makes excellent aftermarket brackets. http://www.alangrovecomponents.com/Catalog.htm
