Power steering hack ..

So the truck just gave me the Xmas gift of a split power steering hose. I'm currently at the grocery store so sealed it up with a bit pond liner and a jubilee clip. Question is will it screw the pump if I run it without fluid or am I reasonably ok to drive it?

If pond liner is holding it, then it's the return line and you are fine. But don't run the pump dry!

Pond liner seems to be holding. I have new lines just they are 70miles away ... Job for next weekend.

Why not just remove the belt to the pump?

Driving on a dry pump is a terrible idea.

Seems to be holding ... It's either that or flatbed it.
