    Hello,
    my steering gear is terribly leaking and to avoid further damage to other components, I want to replace it.
    I have seen many different ones offered on ebay, but the question is - what type should I buy ?
    There are two different types mentioned in the original shop manuals:
    1. FORD Type
    2. SAGINAW Type
    Are these interchangeable, i.e. does it matter what type is now in the car ?
    Any help would be much appreciated as the car is jacked and needs a quick repair.

    Thank you in advance !
