add hydraulic control valve to steering shaft to get hydro-assist?

Wondering if it would be possible to install something like the control valves that Howe uses with their racks with a manual steering box. Splice it into the steering shaft and then hook it up to a pump and ram. Goal would be to add hydro-assist to a vehicle without having to replace the stock manual steering box. Called Howe to ask, but Jeff just left and won't be back in the shop until next Monday.
