M-715 steering help.

I've got a rig to repair for the son of a long time friend who passed away. Its an M-715 that was converted to power steering and I need to replace the steering gearbox however I have no idea what the gearbox came out of so that I can replace it. Some specifics are: A little over 4 turns lock to lock, flare fittings, splined pitman shaft that is 1 1/4" at the top of the splines w/ 7/8"-14
threads and 13/16" input with a flat and grooved for a clamp bolt. It is also a 2 3/4" piston so its a fairly light duty box.

Since it uses flare fittings I'm guessing late '70s or earlier, it bolted into the stock location so it might possibly be from some sort of a Jeep, older Wagoneer, J-20 or something like that. Any help identifying the box would be appreciated.

The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.

It is likely from a 70's Wag, or POSSIBLY a 70's GM car. If it were me, I'd grab a Wagoneer box and be happy. I've done a couple of these over the years.
