At one time, I had a Ford F350 4X4, 4 door, with 8' box.  It's like that.  I got used to it and no big deal.  In my case, the fender well headers would have required extra long steering stops anyway.  The car drives great.  Super handling.  I wouldn't hesitate to do it again!!  If I did it again, I might weld the brackets to the frame for the 'like it belonged there' look.

NOTE:  Don't use a cheap'o GM ignition switch that might cut out on you at any moment.  Really tough to stop and steer with no power!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 57 switch will only start in neutral.  It does have facilities for backup lights and that may be what you are reading thinking it may be park.  58 was the first year they would start in park and neutral.  Yours is good.

As for choices I would make today...I don't know as they would be any different bacause my car is not up and running yet. I'm using the stock Ford PS pump that is on the '95 4.6 dohc engine. It is suppose to be a compatible pressure for use with the Cavalier rack.
The fittings on the Cavalier rack are 16 and 18 mm. I don't know how close the Wurthit setup is to the S&T setup I used, but for the S&T setup the fittings were in a pretty tight space. I went with banjo adapters from pure choice motorsports in Lake Havasu, Az....16mm to 6AN, and 18MM to 6AN. The banjo fittings worked perfectly to be able to just run the #6 lines straight up next to the frame...I strongly recommend them...at least for the rack positioning on the S&T setup.
My setup got a little more involved as I am using a hydroboost brake booster as well, and a cooler, so I had a total of 6 lines (all 6an) I had a special PS remote reservoir made with two return lines. Some pics and more info in the thread on the hrdroboost..last page, reply #66

Mags and radials are on and the overdrive works , I had the solenoid wired backwards. Never owned a car with the electric overdrive and it is a hoot to drive.

Dust covers are available  I got mine from Concours Ford Parts. They are made of leather. I also have a spare bell housing if you need pictures.

Inside the bell housing there should be a bracket that the clutch arm pivots on, it is riveted on. I think I got one from MACs. I've seen one bell housing that it was attached with counter head screws but don't know if that was factory or something that was modified. The clutch arm also needs an anti rattle spring that attaches the arm to the pivot bracket. You could transfer the arm from one bell housing to the other if it has the pivot bracket.

I don't recall ever seeing a replacement dust cover.

Rich,

Can you share any details on the hose ends you finally ended up with?

With the Wurth-it setup I have, I am missing the hoses and pump -- so I need to source these. It looks like you used the eaton pump. If you had a choice today, would you continue with the Eaton pump or go with the  borgeson power steering pump?
