I agree with your post above. You are technically correct, however, I believe we are discussing this from 2 different perspectives. Everything I am talking about is AFTER the Power Steering Pump has been removed. Once you remove the pump, you no longer have a hydraulic system. You have a manual system that has residual hydraulic fluid in it that is in the way. Does that make sense?

EDIT 2: Looking at your top link if you go to the bottom of the page it shows what I'm pretty sure it the design of the rack that the focus has.
I agree.

If you try to replace the fluid in a a rack designed like that one with air you will burn it up if it functions at all.
Once you remove the pump, there is nothing to burn up. It is just a manual rack.
