1971 manual steering box is leaking from the front and the side (with adjustment nut)
all of the nuts were totally lose (don’t ask) so I tightened them all up, and it’s still leaking.
been looking but can’t find anything on the subject, are there gaskets for this or is something else wrong?

The sector shaft seal is available from Toyota still (lower protrusion that connects to the rest of steering). I believe the box end cap takes a gasket, which is discontinued but easy to make with some bulk gasket material.
