1971 gmc 5500 power steering cylinder hunting

Hey so Iíve been trying to track down a new power steering cylinder for a 1971 gmc 5500 dump truck. There arenít much in the way of numbers on the cylinder but there are a few letters stamped on it. It currently works but leaks all its fluids out of the ram in about half a day when being used all day.
I canít find any info on it other then in an old truck and diesel repair manual and itís telling me what type of cylinder it is but thatís about it.

I have a 71 5500 chassis sitting in my shop right now. Might be able to help you out.

Someone painted the entire front end white at some point. Interior and under the hood is yellow.
