Ditto on counting the turns lock to lock. While all those Saginaw steering boxes from that era interchange there are internal differences. The internal stops are different if originally it was installed in the Camaro/Firebird cars, in that case the turning radius will be excessive. Also the road "feel' can be varied depending on the internal torsion bar on the input shaft, no way to tell until installed. There were also variable ratio boxes installed in the early 70's. Later boxes has O-ring type connections where the lines hook up instead of flared. Lots of options, but all physically look the same.
