My recently purchased 68 has all new suspension components except for the steering box. As there is a lot of play in the box, I would like to upgrade/rebuild the box. Any ideas as to whether or not to go with an aftermarket box, or a remanufactured one. It is currently a bit of a restomod, so I would like something that perfoms well and is reasonable tight and responsive. Suggestions and possible sources would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again guys.
I bought a rebuilt power steering box for my '67 Beaumont at Can Craft in Surrey.Cost $250. at the time which was about 6 years ago.
Steering works well,never had a problem.They're still around,try the link.
The one I bought was '67 GM RWD fast ratio no stops PS gear.Probably stock as it has that loose GM feel.
They do have a website, http://www.canpages.ca/page/BC/langley/can-craft-steering-systems/3413605.html
and I see that they're in Langley now.You'll have to copy and paste the website to your browser 'cause I don't
know how to make it work when you click on it.

That's what I was going to say. If you do a search on this site you will find a couple threads on this subject:
There's also a thread somewhere about modifying the hoses easily.

no need to modify hoses,, just grab a pump from 83?? ish GM.. they used a metric hose, but still the old style pump. Just need to change the hose female insert at the pump.
other than changing the outlet presure fitting to metric,, no ....
now,,, I know the outlets can be easily changed in the 70's to mid 80's pumps, NOT sure about the old style 60's pump??
I'm at work , can't pull one of the shelf to tell you right now...

Have you talked to the guys at Hydra Steer in Edmonton?
