Will it hurt the steering box unit if I disconnect the lines and run no power steering.I was thinking maybe the power steering fluid lubed the gears but Im not sure.

Seen lots of people just loop the two together with hose and fluid in the box. A manual will be easier to steer though.

i currently have a power steering box with no power steering.....just looped the two fittings with hose. did that because i couldnt get the old pulley off my pump as a temp setup and i gotta say i HATE it. turnin around or parkin is the biggest bitch and goin through intersections etc require two hands....dosent help that i have a 5speed either. i might switch to a manual box and see how it works with that instead of puttin the pump on.

if you do swap to a manual pump try and find a quick ratio one, or op to get a quick turn steering kit which rasies the turning ratio. to 2 to 1, or 1.5 to 1 instead of the stock 4 to 1
