Default Cross over steering gurus, assemble! :D

So I just found this truck on CL, looks like a 65 900 pickup. What interests me is the prospect of its conversion to crosover steering, wich I've been looking into for my 65 1100. I'm trying to find out:
1 are there any obvious problems with this set up?
2 would I need to extensively mod my current spring set up?
This is my first steering conversion, so any tips you can give me will be helpful. As I understand this conversion can greatly reduce bump steer over the current setup, wich is a bad problem currently. Also, my left front tire rubs bad(like cant steer fully right bad), and this would solve that. Here are the pics of the truck on craigs:



Here are some of my current setup:



Sory pics of mine arent the greatest, but I can get more/take measurements if needed. Alot of lift isnt really an option here, I just spent $300 on a new front drive shaft, so I may be SOL unfortunately.

In the listing he referenced that the parts came from "WFO" and the steering box was a "brand new red-head"
Hope that helps. There is an IH power box that swings side to side, from what I understand, but yet to confirm, this box has the same mounting pattern as the bracket on my unit. (Early 70s power box from a PU/T-all)
Whenever you end up doing this, please feel free to throw some pics and measurements up here
