Very Simple Power Rack and Pinion Steering Question
 
I purchased a power rack and pinion steering assembly as part of my Mustang II IFS from TCI. If I decide to not use power but go with manual steering, do I need to switch to a manual style rack and pinion or can I simply not connect the power steering pump to the rack and pinion. Thanks

Buy a manual rack..you will mess up the power rack running it without fluid.
It would probably work for a while, but IIRC it is a different ratio as well so steering will be harder, and you will tear stuff up.

Later, mikey
