    is it hard? you just get a pump and hydrolic steering box for it? need a different belt right? what all is involved..thought i may do this in the future, manual steering is kinda a pita at a stand still..

    you wil get used to it, manual steering that is. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    i don't believe that you need a new belt. AFAIK the pump replaces the big bracket on the driver side on the block with the pulley on it. you will need to find a s10 2.5 with power steering to get the pump and bracket, which may be very hard as i havn't seen one yet /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. then just swap out the steering box.
