Help Installing Power Steering

My father in law has a kit car that has a 1978 302 for power. He wants to install P/S in it and i,m not sure how to go about this. I seen a bracket and pump on ebay. I also live by a junk yard. I don,t know what components are needed for this project.
If this car has no P/S can this be accomplished by adding a pump and brkt or does the steering gear need to be replaced.
Also does anybody have a picture from the service manual of steering components etc, so I can see what i,m looking at. I don,t want to purchase the manual but would appriciate some needed info. Thanks

You'll need a power steering pump, the bracket, the pulley, the hoses (pressure and return) and a power steering rack and pinion (to replace the manual rack and pinion).

If you're using a factory Mustang II IFS setup, the swap is incredibly straightforward. If not, you'll need to contact the vendor that sold the kit and hope like hell they've got a good tech department and have the rack and pinion parts you'll need.
