Bleeding mustang two rack?

Hi , I have just hooked up my mustang two rack power steering and pump.
Do I need to bleed off any air pockets? or do I just fill up the pump and the rack and pinion will bleed it self out? any help is great. Gary

With the engine off, fill the pump with fluid. Let it sit for a few minutes. Add fluid until it is up to the low, (cold), mark on the dipstick. With the front wheels off the ground, turn the steering wheel slowly from side to side several times, slowly is 8-10 seconds per revolution. Fill the pump as needed to the cold mark. Start the car, do a few more turns, add fluid as necessary. That usually does it.

That is the recommended procedure as specified by a remanufacturer of pumps and racks.

Scroll down for the procedure.

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
