Question GM? cross steer

I recently purchased a 32 Ford chassis set up with a tubular axleMake unknown-it came painted aluminum gray) and mid-sized GM discs, Vega steering box. As best I can tell, I think it has GM spindles and definitely only space for cross steering. There is no tie rod or drag link. The tie rod arms/steering arms have what seem to be single, 1/2" diameter non-tapered holes. I know I need a tie rod with two holes on the right side, but i can only find one with Ford tapered ends (Speedway). Any ideas on where to get the right tie rod, or how to modify what exits without redoing the spindles/brakes will be greatly appreciated. Also, I know I'll need to center the pitman arm on the steering box to coreectly measure the drag link length. Any tricks to this or can I just center it perpendicular to the axle?

your best bet would probably be to change the steering arm to the two hole design on the right side and use heim joints for the tie rod ends.Speedway has all the items you should need.....good luck.............
