Power steering pump will not flow

Hi,
I have a 1993 5.7L TBI motor that I transplanted, it's all stock, including the PS pump. I have fired the engine for only a minute so far and noticed the PS fluid was not circulating.
I connected a clear hose from the steering box to the PS pump return to be able to see the fluid circulating, it did not move any fluid.
I then disconnected the pressure side from the hydroboost and left it connected to the PS pump. I then tried spinning the pump with a drill. It still did not flow.
So what do you think, is it time to try a new PS pump?

Thanks

I would put the pressure line in a bucket n turn the pump with a drill before I condemmed the pump.
