15 Inch measurement

I have recently removed the entire power steering system as a whole from my 1961 Avanti II as part of a full Frame replacement job. I intend on overhauling the Control Valve as a matter of preventative maintenance as the car sat idle for 17 years before I acquired it.  On inspection, I noted the distance between the Control valve grease nipple and the centre of the Reach Rod (grease nipple) was exactly 15 1/4 " . The Shop manual states simply 15" .   In the interests of doing this job correctly, is there any difference between the original shop manual specification and the later chevy-engined Avanti II's?  Do I just reassemble as found ?     Also, In the interests of convenient disassembly, It appears must I extract the Pitman Arm from the Steering Gear as the ball stud on there is not removable?

Regards, Steve.
