I have also started to think about this mod.
I discussed it shortly in this thread:
Ops, can't post urls.
Google for briskoda + "getting rid of power steering"

However... I'm scared that the rack will not take the pressure and increased wear that manually steering with a power steering rack would require.
Since the PAS-rack is designed to have assist, perhaps it can't handle manual handeling?

Is this fear unwarranted?
Please tell me that it won't break if I do this mod!

Here we can see the different equipment manual/powersteering
Google: "Classic Technical Guides" + "Felicia power steering retro-fit thread"
