Actually some boxes run internal stops that can removed by a rebuilder.I've only run into one that was unusuable but Pat at Benchworks went through it and removed the stops. It was very apparent with stops, only just over 90 degrees of pitman swing.
I've done fifty or so saginaw conversions and there have been quite a few boxes with less travel than optimum but still reasonable

Thanks for your help. I pulled my old box off, decided not to rebuild it, then noticed it is 3.5 turns, which gave me even more motivation so I just ordered a 27-6529 box from the local Oreilly's. Should be in the store on Wednesday, and I'll definitely report back on whether its the 4.25 turn, 4 bolt, 3 1/4" piston box. Maybe this will help someone else out there that stumbles across this info.

Next question:

I'd like to upgrade my steering U joint/clamp to a better one that doesn't set screws. Anyone have any suggestions for something a little more robust? The steering shaft is hex.

Here is an old post coming alive!

By chance did you find a better option than the u-joint and set screw method? I would like to replace my setup and I found a clamp u-joint that works with the 30 spline but mine is 36 spline.

Flaming River used to have a large variety of steering input goodies.

I think I bought a 36 spline to double D steering shaft ujoint from Speedway. It is a clamp style. They have a good selection of other parts .
