Power steering adapting

Guys, I need to know if a chevy power steering unit from an 1995 S10 will work with a 1987 Mazda B2000 steering sector. Do you think the mazda sector will handle the chevy pump pressure? Is there a way to find out the press. put out by the chevy and the Mazda? I can plumb them up easily. What about restricting some flow?
What similar set ups have been used and how did it work? prollems??
What better ways are there for my project? This sector and pump are just inches apart, so easy. Thanks.

I do not have that answer ... but what I done in the past is adapt the power steering pump that went with the rack ... to the engine I was using. The Mazda pump should be fairly small and easy to adapt ... I would imagine.

Deuce, I,m using the original Mazda steering set up. It's on the little truck I'm working on, the original steering box and all, except the pump. The pump is on the 4.3 V6 engine it came on from the factory. I think I will just hoop'em up and see what happens. All it can do is blow a seal or something. A little messy, but if it works I have my answer. It's still on jack stands in the garage. Thanks for the reply. Actually the pump on the mazda is a fair size, but some smaller that the chevy.
