I installed the manual box from the 70 Javelin onto my 72. I didnt need any adapter brackets from the ps unit. I did need a spacer for one of the bolts. I did use the manual ragjoint.  The manual box was not threaded so i had to use nuts but all in all pretty easy swap.

Wish I would have seen this earlier, I have a GOOD manual box from a 69 Javelin, pitman and all sitting in my shop. I doubt I'll ever use it. My brother converted his 69 to power and I got the parts he removed.
But I see you have already found everything you needed......

I can still hear the complaints in my head when someone had to move my manual steering, manual transmission Javelin for me one night LOL

"How do you drive that piece of crap?" LOL

^something I would hear a lot more of later when all my daily drivers were hacked up/lifted Jeeps Clap

I would love to have a manual steering daily driver again, but I'm not as strong as I was 30 years ago Ouch
