1956 Ford B600 Steering Gear

My 56 Ford B600 has about 3miles of slop in the steering box, does anyone know what I can use to convert it to power steering? Or should I just rebuild this one and leave it Armstrong power steering?
Any input would be appreciated...
Thank you

Thinking off the top of my head here but what about swapping one out of an F600??

Yeah, I had thought of that, I was wondering if there were any other options, a new F600 PS box is over $800...

When trying to save a couple of dollars, I myself would be ok with taking one from a good used truck.

How about sourcing a box truck from an auction?
That way you’ll have all the major parts and can still scrap what’s left!
