Help me identify this Saginaw gear box

I've got a Saginaw steering box I took off my 85 cj around 3 yr. ago to put an H1 box on the jeep. I'm not sure if the Saginaw is the original box or not cause the outside had at least a partial repainting w/some paint runs present. There were really no issues at the time of the swap; just wanted to try the H1 box.
Anyway, I want do do a rebuild of the Saginaw box so am trying to get the specs on the box so I can order the right rebuild kit. Here are some pics of the box markings. The machined surface marking (looks to be 4A242) the date code (Julian date), but cannot get a website converter to come up with a reasonable regular calendar date. Anyway, I'd appreciate any insights you guys have on the details of this box. Thanx.

PS: yes it's an original box, could be a reman inside. but it's also the original box for a lot of vehicles, AMC, Camaros, Firebirds, etc..
