Gemmer steering box ID help

I think its from a big truck, 5DC62 is cast in below the GEMMER. Any help would be appreciated. The mounting flange is bigger than our 57 F100.

A larger size unit was used on the bigger trucks. However, the last pic of the end plate with the adjustment screw and lock nut looks a little different than I expected. I have the larger Gemmer unit in my F100. Took a few modifications but worth the extra mechanical advantage you gain. I can't give any help with the casting numbers and doubt if you will ever unlock their mystery!

I would like to put this in a 57 F100, how did you do it? Trim the casting, open up frame area? Thanks

I left the casting alone and just drilled the holes I needed. It fit inside the frame. It was a little tricky to make sure it was installed at the same angle to fit up next to the bottom of the dash. You will also have to make a change with the clutch return spring if you are using one.
