HOW DO I BYPASS THE POWER STEERING RAIL COOLER FOR A TEMP FIX.

1999 Chevrolet Truck • 309,567 miles

My P/S rail cooler has had it. I live a distance from anyone so I must drive into town to get it permanently fixed. The outlet hose at he connection point is cracked as well. I own a well maintained 1999 Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton 4X4, std cab, 5.3Ltr, LS. I can donate for the question, however; not until Wednesday as I get paid bi-weekly. Thank You for your help.

Would that change the Vol/Pressure? If not, at least on a temp basis; how long would it last before damaging the pump?
