    You should be fine. Just make sure there's always fluid in there though to keep the rack lubricated.

    you need to loop the lines install a "breather" tank(essentially the reservoir). Check out the threads on Honda-Tech(PS removal).

    Definitely just search "power steering delete" or removal on H-T, there's many ways to do it.

    If the P/S lines are still hooked up to the P/S pump, it will make steering harder.

    Get a brass nipple and some clamps, cut off the ends of the hose where it hooks up to the pump; and just bypass it. That's probably the easiest way.

    Fluid will leak out, steering rack will begin to wear out, "rough" steering, etc.

    you can easily help yourself by doing about 30 mins worth of reading on the subject. im sure if you cant find it here you can google it. dont let it hang with tp and dangling hoses...keep it clean and what not, but most important, do it right the first time. good luck.

    WTF is with all the god damn question marks?????

    You've got 2 lines in your rack. Get a breather tank, hook one port from your rack to one port in your breather, and the other port on the rack to the other port in the breather. Done.
