Lightbulb 91 accord ex p/s delete

I really want to take out my power steering pump. I've repaired it tons of times and replaced the belt (and the pump itself) at least 3 times over the past 8 months. Plus I want my bay to look a little better. I already know it'll be a pain to turn and parking will be a fail but I don't drive this car. I don't depend on this car.

Okay so now that we got that out of the way, how do I delete my p/s? I want to take everything out, hoses, reserve, pump, and run a shorter belt since I won't have the pump anymore. (Anyone know the length I need?)

If someone could show me how to do all this with pictures or send me to a DIY delete guide I'd really appreciate it.

Yeah I figured that's all you do but I want to get rid of the hard lines too. How hard was it to steer without ps after you got deleted it?

ok to delete the ps just start by taking shit. you dont need a short beelt because the ps as its own belt (the ac share belt with the alt btw) to delete the hard line start by removing the bumper because theres one of the hard line behind the bumper also theres two hard lines on the vss body once you disconnect those than jack up the car put some jackstand to secure the car wont fall on you while your under and take the cover one the R&P 4X10mm bolt than unscrew the hard lines off the R&P and done....oh the hardlines are bolted down a different parts of the bay so look out for those before pulling on them

hope this help also you can leave the R&P with no pump or fluid but it will get damage down the road so it best to do the conversion to manual rack like the DIY link ( CISCOKID) posted so you dont damage the rack

i believe PRCB7 scale of feel was
10 with PS
3 without PS
and 7 with the rack converted to manual(also there a adjustment setting if you do it this way)

at anything lower than 10mph its annoying
but i learned to get used to it, and i actually like the way it feels compared to p/s i feel like i have more control on curves and sharp turns

Well I could get used to that. Im just worried about looping the lines the wrong way or something lol. Like I don't really know exactly what line to loop into what.

I'm just going to loop them for now to hold off on buying a manual rack, plus it'll take me 2 weeks to have enough money left over from bills to buy one.
