Default Power steering question

Have a 67 restomod with a 5.0/t5 set up. Car was originally a 6cyl/3spd. Manual steering, but I have a guy that's got a power steering unit for sale near me cheap...wondering if this was a good idea or better to get a flaming river/borgeson etc? Thoughts? I'm supposed to go check it out this weekend. How difficult is this to bolt up etc...

Thanks guys/gals!

Its a fairly easy swap.
The condition of the parts would determine if
its a good deal or not. You could rebuild it
yourself or use the parts as core trade ins.
Most likely some part of it will need attention.

What would I need to "swap" out...all the linkage? etc?

With the power steering set up every component needs to be near perfect. Cheap is kinda meaningless if it's got shot sloppy components. You'll think the Mustang power steering is crap! When everything is maintained right it's great! My 68 Stang power steering is mostly original but properly maintained. Works great, no slop and no leaks!

Cheap can be a lousy deal!

The manual vs. PS center link is different (because to control-valve threads onto it.)

If for some reason the "cheap parts" don't look good from your source - I've got "almost new" components in perfect working condition I pulled off my '67 after I went manual. (Power valve with both new hoses, slave-cylinder and boot, header-drop bracket...) I was just getting ready to put these up on the FS link...
