Ross gear box

Looks like the teeth on the input shaft finally striped out. I can't find a new one does anyone know where to get one. Also seems like a good time to do a saginaw swap, what all will I need to get to make that swap work?

if you want another ross i've got one you can have for free (you pay shipping). i almost threw it in the trash yesterday, but if you want it, let me know. the saginaw swap isn't terrible, but some of the parts get expensive (like the steering shaft) you'd need to get a gearbox (off of a wagoneer or something, it's a very common gearbox ~60$), you'd need to get or make a mount for the gearbox for the frame, new steering shaft and ujoints (~250$), also you'll need to notch out the motor mount to accommodate the new steering shaft. it's not a terribly hard swap

when I install saginaw steering on mine, i use the same column that came with the vehicle. I just used a rag joint at the box like factory and it has been no problem.
