behlen power steering ?

After a year or so I began to feel a little slack in the stock steering box on my 38 dodge sedan WAS running 350-350 combo with stock steering except for disk brakes, changed over to 4.3 v-6 so I lightened it a little.
I have been considering power steeing options ( rack vs cross steer vs chevy 4wd box vs power assist). Anyway I recently aquired a behlen power steering unit fom an old farmall tractor and wondered if anyone had ever used this as an option to add power steering.? It could easily be mounted inline with the collum in a variaty of ways and works great with power steering pump.
I put an old c-50 chevy truck straight axle with 8.50 20s under the tractor and used a power assist that worked so well that the behlen unit was spare parts.
Also I wondered, just hypotheticly if this unit could be coupled with a hydraulic motor and used as a tourqe amplifier?
thanx rusty rockerpanels
