Default Manual steering rack

Has anyone modified their factory steering to be a manual setup? The only thread I could find the pics would not show up unfortunately.

I am thinking about installing an electric wp and only running an alt belt. Just trying to make it simple!

Thank you,

Paul

I did, but I took the pics off my FB so they wont show. It's pretty simple, you just need to make a 5 pronged tool to get the inner nut off the steering rack. Open rack, cut off hydaulic seal with a cutoff wheel (easy) then remove lines and cap the fitting holes. I just added the 13-14 bypass pullies from cars with elec steering. Works great

I am thinking about setting mine up like the copo...remove the lines and pump. Needless to say I would need to get most of the fluid out of the rack. I am just hoping someone comes out with a manual rack!!!
