Manual steering swap

Other than switching to a steering rack are there any manual steering boxes that would be a direct replacement t for the power steering gear box. I have an old box out of a 1960 impala I am thinking of trying, but even if it bolts to the frame I'll need a longer steering shaft at a minimum and then have to find a proper pitman arm.

Trying to get as much accessory load off the engine and freeing up some space around the engine would be nice.

85-02 S-10 manual steering box (with 4 bolts on cover) will bolt up and the 3rd gen pitman arm fits.
