Manual steering to power steering cost

very subjective question here. Parts you would need for this conversion will be 

hydraulic power assisted steering gearbox  (known as box) 

power steering pump

fluid reservoir and fluid pipes (steel as well as rubber hydraulic type hoses) 

first of all you need to figure out whether a matching steering box is available for this model or if those are not available (most likely as this model didn't come with PAS) maybe you will have to do minor modifications and fix a power steering box of a PO5.

Secondly you need to see what are the provisions available in the engine block to mount a power steering pump. If provisions are not there you might have to fabricate a bracket or buy a suitable bracket from a vehicle with power steering and with the same engine. I believe this is the Orion engine therefore you should be able to find a pump and bracket of some lancer model. 

if you managed to find a pump and a bracket, you'll need to see how to drive the pump. whether from an existing belt (using the same groove of the main pulley, in this case you'll have to change the belt) or adding another belt if your mail pulley has an additional blank groove. 

and finally the reservoir bottle plus necessary tubing. 

as you may understand the cost varies depending on what you'll have to source. In my gut feeling we're talking about a job not less than 35~45k easily.

just check the front sus joints and check alignment.

more worth if you spend the money to get a front disc conversation.



Some don't convert these vans to disks as they make use of the distinct advantage of front drum brakes (hence less requires the brake booster and therefore can run on even downhill with engine switched off !!!! ). This is the reason why L300 and even T120 (kichi kichi delica) were popular in upcountry.
