Can I use manual steering brackets with power steering box?

Just bought a power steering box for my 1976 CJ-7. Can I bolt this up to my excising manual steering box frame brackets? Will these be strong enough or do I have to use power steering specific brackets?

The box mount brackets for the frame should work fine, if they aren't cracked (common problem). You will need a p/s pitman arm, they aren't the same.

The bracket is the same. But the pitman arm, and the input shaft are different. You'll need to get the lower part of the donors steering shaft as well.
