Power steering with 1994 EFI 351W engine in 68 coupe?

Like I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am putting a 1994 EFI 351W engine from
an SVT Lightning into my '68 coupe. The '68 has power steering, and I'd
like to keep it. The engine pulled from the Lightning has a PS pump
attached. Does anyone know how hard it would be to make it work with the
'68's steering?

Thanks!
Thomas

Why would it be any harder than connecting the lines? Most "hose" shops can
make hoses any length with any fittings on the ends. If you need a cooler,
just put it on the return side. (Low pressure)

As designed, it won't work. The older pumps have different pressures and flow
rates than the old ones. You could probably make it work if you used a Heidt's
adjustable pressure valve.

So would the best bet be to use the '68 PS pump? Fab some sort of
bracket?
