    Power steering advise-please

    Chevy is all fitted up apart from the main hydraulic feed, as the car is almost done- I want a run out in it tomorrow, so as the pump isn't connected yet- would it do any harm to the rack driving it with no fluid going round it?

    Cheers

    Rich

    pump uses the hydraulic oil for lubrication, and the only way to use the rack is to couple the pipes together so the fluid just flows around the rack
