1982 International Harvester Schoolbus with Bluebird body

Hello fromGermany
I am Rudi. I own a 1982 International Harvester Schoolbus with Bluebird body. Now I have a problem. A part in the power steering box broke. It is not poosible to get a new box in Germany. It is a Saginaw 710 dual piston power steering box with a three hole mount. There are three numbers on the body: 7830389,
78122269, 10081. Have someone of you a adress of a Company where I can buy this steering box or an idea how I can get one? I also need other parts so I am glad if you send me contact information from Companys who sell this part. Thank you very much.
Kind regards
Rudi

im not familiar with germany, is it a left-hand drive bus or right-hand? its quite possible that your original steering box could be sent over here to the states, rebuilt and sent back.. I know of a company in my city that does nothing but rebuild steering boxes, any idea what broke? did you lose steering control or lose power assist?

It is a Schoolbus from the States. It was imported 10 years ago. A part of one piston broke. So I lost the power of the steering.

We had a member in the UK who imported a bus and broke the steering box. IIRC he rebuilt it himself.

Google shows plenty saginaw 710 of them. If you know what part broke then make a picture so that there is a visual confirmation.
How much money do you want to spend.
