You need a shop manual. Reproduction factory shop manuals are available from most of the T-Bird repro parts suppliers. Grandpa had a '61 and I must say, it was one of the most illogical cars I have ever worked on. I wish you luck. You may have to lift the engine slightly or do something else completely irrational.

Have a shop manual. "Remove power steering lines and bolts. Remove steering box". No mention of the pin that prevents the box from releasing from the shaft.
