Hi guys, long time reader, first time posting.
I have a 68, 350 sb which came with power steering.
My problem began with the installation of the Procharger which now leaves no room for the power steering reservoir.
The options as I see them are to go with a remote pump, bracket and relocate the res. or, change the box to a manual with quick ratio and new pitman arm.
I'd really appreciate hearing from someone who has had this same concern in the past.
TIA

I'm using a low mount p/s pump with a remote reservoir. My car is also blown, but mine has got a 671 blower on it. On my last "street" car I went the manual steering route. It got old real quick. I'm real happy with the set up I'm using on my current car. I know my car is a big block. but they make the same set up for small blocks too. I can post some pictures if you'd like. It's actually a "stock car" style set up. I bought the pump, bracket and remote resivoir from a dirt track catalogue and made the lines myself. The mount puts the pump down low on the drivers side. I mounted the resivoir on the radiator support.

Thanks Mark, I appreciate you're advice. I've been used to PS for as far back as I can remember and I'm 52 now.
I'd love to see some pictures when you could post them and thanks again for your efforts.

I'll take some pictures and post them. I'll try to get them on tonight if I can. Here's a very similar setup to the one used. (this one is acually nicer). I found this one on SummitRacing.com. This one is a bit pricy but there are other kits out there. You might be able to piece a similar set up together for less, like I did, but if I had to do it again I would buy a complete kit like this. I did mine a while ago but there weren't any kits available that I could find at that time . They use the GM Gen II type pumps. You would just need to buy or make the lines.

Here's one for just the bracket:
