Identify steering arm?

When I replaced '36 steering box with a '40 unit I thought steering arm was also '40 but noticed number on arm is 78-3590, GREEN BOOK doesn't show that number.
What year arm would this be?

Re: Electrolysis solution?

Pete, not sure what you mean by "pressurize" the cooling system, you mean bring it up to operating temp.?
Hear about a product called IRON-TITE, wonder if that would help.
