Default Best Power Steering Pump With Remote Reservoir

I plan to install a new power steering pump with a remote reservoir in my 73 big block when I drop in the 496.
Who manufactures the best PS pump for the remote reservoir set up.
I'll be using the stock V-belt pulley system and Borgesen steering box.
Thanks

If you're using the stock v-belt setup you could always go with a GM pump from a later model astrovan, they take the same pump as your stock one and have all the same bolts in the same places as the stock pump but have a hose fitting (clamp style) for the remote reservoir.
Some of these were also using hydroboost brakes so there's an extra fitting on some (as far as I can tell)
The return pipe is bent a different direction but that's minor

I picked one up to play with but haven't gotten very far, then moved the alt to the passenger side and it's not as big a deal as it was before (the remote reservoir) so it's on the shelf until it gets to the top of the list again
