Unusual Power Steering Conversion

Have a 66 Fairlane GT/A (390, automatic). It has stock manual steering which is TERRIBLE (heavy and way too low geared).
Tried a setup using the period power steup which uses the same box and a power cylinder but the results were no better.
Can find nothing nowhere to help me out.
What I really want is a high geared (3 turns) power assisted steering.
I have very limited access to scrapyards and to donor cars locally but I have some Saginaw PS components.
Has anyone any experience with these GM units in my type of Ford? What about a rack pinion power setup? (Mustang maybe?)
My car is otherwise stock/original, apart from power disc brakes.

Help, this car is a barge to drive!!
Thanks for any help!!
Lars
