Pitman arm - How to ID for PS or Manual Steering

I just received a stock pitman arm I bought used. Its supposed to be for and 85CJ w/PS - I am trying to verify but the ones on Quadratec don't have the same number and honestly I cant tell much difference in the pics of the PS/manual arms.

The number on this one is 5353275. Can anyone tell me if this is for PS or can you tell me what to look for? Thanks in advance.

Pic (low quality taken with Ipod):

The size of the hole for the sector shaft (steering box end) is larger on a power pitman arm than a manual. That's the only difference.
