Civic Power Steering Bleed

Hey all,

I'm having some issues getting my girlfriend's power steering to work properly. She has a 1995 Civic LX with the D15B. Her old pump failed months ago. I replaced it with a used Honda pump (I know..) and it wouldn't bleed for anything. I thought it was bad, so I bought a new one and it wouldn't either! So I put the used one back on and got it "good enough." It would still whine a little and was rough, but worked.

Well, 6 months later, the used pump has failed; not surprisingly since it never worked right. I just bought another new one and it WILL NOT work! I know it's not the pump. It can't be after 2 new pump, this one's on me.

I was keeping the fluid up, turning lock to lock in the air, on the ground. in the sea! The damn thing wouldn't take much fluid. It kept overspilling if anything when I got to the locks quickly. After HOURS of this it got decently quiet and I was happy. Set it down and BAM! absolutely no power assist and the pump is fairly quiet.

WTF! Possible valve in the rack? I don't want to replace that on a hunch. Help is greatly appreciated because I'm ready to junk this damn thing.
