'64 Impala power steering question

I read the thread on the '65 Impala PS conversion using the 12.7 quick ratio out of a Jeep GC. My question is will this same conversion work for a '64? Sorry if I'm overlooking where this question was already answered. My '64 has power steering, so if I'm getting all of this right I was planning on pulling a '95 Jeep GC 12.7 box, and buying the conversion kit from Lee's ->http://www.lee-powersteering.com/rebuild-misc.htm . The kit will take care of the shaft fitting the 12.7 box and the the SAE lines fitting the O ring fitting of the donor gear box. Im I missing anything? Or am I all systems go?

Thanks guys

There are kits to convert your power assist from an external slaver piston to an internal piston built into the box. The one off a Jeep will bolt on, but there is a bit more involved than just bolting it on.

All of the boxes I have swapped were usually going from power assist to a manual gear box and it was on nothing older than a 1967 car year, so I am limited on experience.
