    That P/S pump and reservoir look like the stock ones from the mid 80's 6.2L diesels. I believe the brackets off of the diesels fit Small block Chevy engines too.

    You want a bigger cooler than otherwise. With HB you'll be working the PS fluid to boost both steering and brakes, not just steering. Late 80's Ford 3/4t's have a nice one that will bolt behind the grill just outboard of the core support strengthening rib like it was made to be there.
