    I have a 1985 Fj60 in Nicaragua... It is a US car but it is now in Nica. I have a problem with the Air pump. TehPower Steering Fluidleaked into it, and, well it is screwed... Now I am looking for a solution that does not involvebuy a used or new one from the US, as here they are impossible to find... (they only had Deisel engines here in those years). Well I was wondering if the Pump can be totally bypassed, at least temporarily until I can get one from the US.

    Can anyone help with that issue?
