power steering rack in a 34 ford frame

I have finished mounting a 87 Dodge Omni power steering rack in my 34 Ford frame. Because i am using the origional lincoln 460 that has the power steering pump mounted off of the crank behind the crank pulley I mounted the heidts power steering control valve to cut the pressure and put the excess back into the resevoir...
Looking at the Heidts valve you can see the upper right port not connected...that goes to the power steering pump (as soon as the motor is in)... and the lower right hand port that is the return to the resevoir...again connected when the engine is in....
The rack is not seen from the front keeping that old style dropped axle look and is hidden pretty much under the engine...so i just thought you all might 've wanted to take a peek...
