Default 6 cylinder to 350 power steering conversion

Hey guys, I am putting a 350 in my 1970 nova that originally had a 250 in-line 6 in it. My question is will my power steering pump off of my 250 be useable on my 350? I do know that I will need the small block brackets but not sure if the pumps are interchangeable. any help would be much appreciated!

The pumps are all the same but the reservoir differs in where the hose enters and leaves the back of the reservoir. The return hose may interfere with the exhaust manifold or it may not as I never used a power steering pump on any of my builds favoring manual steering which is lighter and in my mind better for performance driving. I can state that a SBC power steering pump's hoses will run into a big block head requiring you to buy a reconditioned BBC pump.

To add to Dave's post, the pulleys are different. Need brackets and pulley to match the type of water pump being used (long or short).
