Default Tapping steering gear box

Anybody know where to tap into my steering gear box instead of buying an orbital valve for full hydraulic steering? The gear box is stock (1998 s blazer)

Thanks

it doesnt work like that. with a orbital that is the valve. with full hydro you do not get the flow to the ram with pressure until there is resistance on the box in most set ups

there are ways of doing it but it will cost you more to get a dead box built that directs flow then what a orbital would cost.

Thank you, someone told me I could and I didn't think it was that easy. U can just do assist? Anyone know where to get a used valve? Can I use one out of a old tractor or fork truck? Is there specific specs on the valve I gotta know/have?
