Power steering without the pump is worse than No power steering at all. Don't do it.

Re: power steering without pump?

You can do it, but it will be a bear to turn. I blew up my high pressure line on my power steering on the trail once, and was left with manual steering for the day. I took the v-belt off of the pump, but it was still a PITA to turn the tires. I've heard you can drain the fluid out and it will be a little easier to turn.

Short answer... Yes, it will work. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] ~Steve
