Ricks had one a few years back.  I don't know if they still do.

There is a guy selling kits on Ebay for Saginaw type 525 steering boxes.
All of the parts are correct except the top gasket.
I just made a new gasket myself and assembled it up.

Know nothing of them, but they are one of the links on this site.

Tom Lee did mine and it came out real nice. The overhaul kit is not enough parts by itself to finish the job in my experience.  You usually end up needing other parts and those have to be tracked down.  Then there is the lash setting procedure to do as well....  I decided to send it to Tom.  He advised me to make it higher effort than it was originally and I really wish I had taken him up on the offer.  The factory boost is too much.  Can't really change it easily after the fact.  Same ratio but better road feel.  I am picky about originallity but this is one place it makes sense to go away from the factory spec in my opinion.  His too. :)

He did stamp his number on the top cover so you might want to talk to him about that if you are particular.
