Yes this will fit a '78 to '88 G body or 'Metric' car. Pitman arm 91032550 is correct for that application and will fit this box.

Which pitman arm does it take ?

We offer several pitman arms that will fit this steering box. The one you need will be dependent upon the application it is used on. Some of the pitman arms for this box include 91032550, 91032555, 91032560, 91032556. This uses the "big spline" size that GM used through the 60's 70's and 80's cars.

Mounting on T-bucket frame Will this fit between the frame rail and the block of a SBC on a T-bucket frame? I'm going the be SCCA Solo racing with 14" wide front tires.

It is doubtful that this steering box will fit between the rail and a small block Chevy on the T bucket chassis without modification to the length, width, or both. Sorry I do not have a power steering box that will fit in the tight quarters of a T bucket application.
