Default Need help finding pitman arm.

Hey guys, I need some help identifying the correct pitman arm.

I'm using a mid 70's F250 manual steering gear (reversed) for the cowl steering in my project:





Of course, a pitman arm for a mid 70's (or any year) F250 (or any other ford model) doesn't fit this box, most of the pitman arms are too big of a hole/spline.

The output shaft is 1.11" on the big end of the taper and 1.050" on the small outboard end of the tapper. It has three masters on the steering gear side of the spline. I'm not to concerned about the masters as I'm sure I'll need to grind them to clock the pitman where I need it anyways.

Parts listings say this gearbox is a 28 spline. The closest I can find by size is a 32 spline, 4 master with a 1.020" hole pitman for a GM 525/605 box. I can not find in parts store or online a pitman arm by size listing catalog. This afternoon I took the box into my local napa and pulled every pitman arm they had in stock on the shelf and not a single one fit.

Does anyone have any insight on what pitman arm to get for this box? Here I thought using a mid 70's ford steering gear would be easy to find parts :-P

Thank you for an advice and input
