Post front end problems

I just bought a 65 mustang. The car had factory power steering but it started leaking, so the pump was removed. However, the gear box was left. The upper ball joints have been replaced and everything else is very tight. The alignment specs for this car call for the toe to be .24 degrees in. The problem is that the front tires will toe way in and camber way out when driving forward which makes the car impossible to drive. When put in reverse the front end relaxes to normal specs. We toed the car way out -.75 and the front seems normal except it is out of spec and squeels front tires around normal corners. Please give suggestions, my only thought is to switch to a manual steer box.
