What all can be, or needs to be done to a stock steering box(out of a late 70s gm full size I think) to make it work better w/o the p/s pump? Thanks!

It has to turn every now and again... Its also kinda a street car. (I build what comes to me). No p/s because there is no room for the pump. Ted said that you guys might know what to do. Thanks guys.

loop the line from the pressure side to the return side and put in a little power steering fluid to keep the box lubed, also if this is pretty much just a drag car(not everyday driver) a vega manual box will take many pounds off the front end.
