power steering pump is leaking so i just want to go ahead and delete it. also wouldn't mind working on my forearm muscles
Fix it and keep your arms the way they are.
The super friendly guy linked to above, is thinking of going back to his power steering setup in the Colt/Mirage.
What part of the system is leaking? There area couple of lines involved beyond the cooler stuff, and they aren't that hard to have replaced by a hydraulic shop
or an exact duplicate part from Dorman/OEM, etc.
If you still have rear steering, then there is a thread for block that off also and retaining just the front portion.
