As said before I used the 2 piece crank balancer from a 68. The 67 390 orig used what I call a combo damper & pulley combined. If you wanted to add power steering, you had to use the hard to find bolt on pulley, was # C1AZ-6A312-D. I eventually found one but put it away with my orig damper/pulley. I believe the 68 balancer I used was p/n C8AZ-6316-B.

My ps pump tag number HBA-HF
My pump pulley # 6AA, same as the 67 "AG"
My power steering box tag SMB-K (from a 68 ps car I had) saved my orig manual box.
Note: I ordered my correct stamped belts from Marti Auto Works as they also sell those with orig markings.
Thanks a ton. Thatíll help me a lot. Need to look over what I have.

I do need a pitman arm for a 67 with the bigger shaft. C7xxx preferably for a power steering car. I bought a steering setup for a 67 but it came with the spear type box, early car 289 and mine is a late car 390. Found a correct box here local for $20.00 but no pitman arm.

I don't know how much of this is true, thought I read long ago, The 67 390 only cars (maybe just manuals) maybe later production, were the first to use the short steering shafts first.
Then all stangs in 68.

I know my May 10th build 390 came with short shaft.

FYI, if you have the tri-power, do it. It was a dealer option.
Fyi it has to be from a Galaxie, and NOT from a T-Bird as that won't fit under the hood. Diff angle intake...

If you borrow a tool more than twice, you need to own it You get what you pay for!

Itís a galaxie set up. Pretty stoked about it. I have a short shaft box I just picked up. Earlier I bought a whole steering set up pump etc and it came with the long shaft box. Iíll be selling that one as I donít need it. Or may just keep it around just in case I find another project I was told that all the FE cars had the short box on the Concours Mustang Forum as well.
