Default steering assist question

i want to run full hydro steering but was wondering can you do the assisted setup with a double ended ram, tapped gearbox and then just no connect the steering linkage. basically just use the gearbox as an orbital valve

The gearbox doesn't work as an orbital valve. When you tap the gearbox it sends fluid to the ram when the gearbox has high resistance to turning (thus the assist).

If you don't connect the steering you won't get resistance until full lock so you'd have to do a lot of turning to get the ram to work.
