going to power steering from manual

I have manual steering in my 64 lark that has a buick 455 in it. I just purchased a pull power steering pump with lines for the 455 and now looking to hopefully find a direct drop in. I see a bunch of options going with a grand cherokee box or grand national box but they all need to have the lines converted over to work. Is there a direct drop in steering box that won't be 4-4.5 turns for wheel lock and maybe closer to 3.5 turns?

Try the guys at Borgeson.com as they specialize in steering boxes..Most likely yours is a Saginaw of some kind and there maybe a direct bolt up box..As far as the lines are concerned some fabrication may be required..

looking to keep costs down and find something local hopefully, possibly from another vehicle if need be. I can do the GC or GN conversion for around $150 but if i can find a direct drop in from a doner vehicle I would rather do that.
