Interesting stuff. I'd like to see visual difference between the two.

I assume the adjustment in Sect 9 applies to manual boxes too no?

Yes it is a fluke.. I put in 69 VIN with bogus last 6 numbers and got the same result.

I rebuilt my manual steering box and adjusted it out of the car to get it close then made small final adjustment after re-install.  It's really important to get it "centered" in the travel. 
Out of the car the force required to rotate the input should noticeably get higher when you approach the center of travel, with the highest resistance at dead center of travel.  Once back in the car, I loosed the nut and adjusted the bolt just slightly to stiffen it up to my liking.  Since you're not sure how it got loose, I would pull it and try to reset it on the bench, then re-install and see if it got better. There are some good Youtube videos on rebuilding and setting these Saginaw units.

I am in the middle of a manual steering thingy myself and was looking on YT for videos. I came across one for the 5679142 box. Any links you could PM me or post?

I noticed that deep groove too. Chain bolted to head for engine torque, rear bumperettes taken off and manual steering... Shes a racer!
