One thing I forgot to mention -- the connection to the steering rack. I put a late model T-bird power rack in my Rambler wagon. While I made the shaft from salvaged parts, I didn't have room to use a rag joint on the bottom. I thought about taking a rag joint apart and welding the splined section to the shaft, but that wouldn't clear the engine mount either. I bought a slip coupling from Speedway (www.speedwaymotors.com). I welded that to the shaft. It cost around $20 with shipping, but at around 1" diameter it clears! They have couplers splined for almost everything.
