No need to spend big $$ if you're not autocrossing etc. You can buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee
box from Rockauto for reasonable $$. Read this thread first.

Re: Want to put power steering in my 68 Camaro?

I admire the top end work like Frank's. But, as also mentioned, adding PS can be accomplished many different ways.
I did mine with the help of a fellow member that was selling a 3 turn '67 quick gear box with the original tank. I got the correct pulleys and brackets for my '68 350 off eBay and finished up with new hoses, fan belt and rag joint from the catalogs.
I may have spent under $200, but that's with using all stock components.

I bought a re-manufactured box from Cardone for around $100. I destroyed my original trying to replace the seals. I think I got the pump from Rockauto. Pullys and brackets from March. Not too expensive and looks good.

Re: Want to put power steering in my 68 Camaro?

Frank, do you have any heat issues with the power steering box being so close to the headers? Mine is very close as well.

It depends on the headers you use.
At shows or cruise nights you'll find nine out of ten 1st Gen's that have the mandatory hammer ding on at least one header tube.

It's close, to close, and i'm sure it makes the fluid hotter than it needs to be. I'm adding a PS cooler to hopefully help. Something like this https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-331018 and i'm thinking i'll mount it on the bottom front of the radiator core support.

I will probably end up going with something similar.

I used a website called Performance On Line (POL). I ordered their 14:1 kit for around $600 and I'm really satisfied with the results. Good luck!
