56 chev power steering


I have just started the strip down and re-build of my 56 Chev 4 door.
The car was last built in 1986 with a 409 BB and 9'' diff with drum brakes. It has a one piece tilt front and HQ Holden discs up front. The last guy who had it removed the BB and installed a 350 Chev with a 350 turbo trans.
I have decided to install a power steering unit to replace the existing steering box.The car is a right hand drive.I stripped the car right down and sandblasted and painted the chassis repairing a few cracks etc along the way. I have installed a complete new front and rear end kit and have new bushes arriving for the idler arm and have new tie rod ends etc in the steering. It has lowered front springs and new shocks up front.

What power steering unit would be best to set up and what pump is compatible.
I have looked at a 1997 Vortec chev power steering pump on Trade me but not sure if this is compatible ?
Any advise would be appriciated.

The car is getting a major over haul and hopefully will be on the road by next March.

As one of the Moderators here,


Your car, being a "other side" driver may present a few problems for those of us here in the USA.....

Over here the most popular changeover is the GM 605 power steering box. There are kits to do it....on line.


Maybe there is a "other side" drive 605 steering box from over there......
