Help identifying rack and pinion

I have a 51 Ford F1 , was told when I bought it, it has a Crown Vic front end. Changing front brake pads matched with a 91 explorer. Rack and pinion is busted need a rebuilt one. No rack that I've seen on a Crown Vic matches my rack. Order the Explorer rack.The Explorer looks exactly like it except for the gearbox,it is slanted forward, will not work. Mine is basically straight up with a slight slant to the driver side fender. Looked all over the rack for a part number, no luck. Hoping to get lucky and someone can look at the pictures and point me in the right direction.

Sure looks a lot like this: https://www.speedwaymotors.com/New-T...ers,98778.html
Check the tie rod length and the mounting hole distance. Center to center on this is 15.5", my Mustang II rack was 16", they have offset bushings to allow it to mount. Note that steering is 2.5 turns lock to lock. Good luck!

Check maybe 1998-up Ranger, the ones with Independent Front Suspension 2WD (not the earlier Twin I-beam stuff).

Could be more helpful if you took the pictures on cement or paved surface so detail is more apparent, with a tape measure defining the mounting points and inner tie rod span.
