Mustang II power steering

Hi,
I have installed a 1977 Mustang II front end, with power steering, under a 1941 Ford chassis with a 1990 Ford Crown Victoria 5.0L engine. My question is; are the Mustang II rack and the Crown Vic. power steering pump compatible as far as pressure and volume are concerned? As I understand it the Mustang II rack operates at 800 to 900 psi and approximatly 2 GPM, does anyone know for sure if this is correct, and what the operation pressure and volume for the Crown Vic. pump is? Or know where to find this information?
Thanks
John Hawes

I don't know

when they use Gm power on Mustang II they have to put in a pressure reducing system... I would call one of the places that build the mustang II conversions kits and ask them ... then should know if the crown vic would work as is.

I have never understood the problem here and probably never will. For heaven's sake, you're a hot rodder. Cobble up some mounts to run the MII pump on the motor and live happily ever after. Sheesh.

I would think that a Ford in a Ford would work better than my Ford in a GMC with a Chevy pump, which by the way works very good with a few shims in the pressure valve!!
