Bleeding Power Steering System

Just changed out both hoses (leaking) on the power steering pump on my CS. I have a 302. I'm assuming that since air was introduced to the system that a bleeding process has to occur, but I can't seem to find any instructions anywhere. I have filled the reservoir to the full mark but not yet started the car.

Could anyone pull an assist here..???

When I filled my new power steering pump with F-Type ATF, the directions said to jack up the front end, and without the motor running, turn the steering wheel lock to lock five or six times. Then check the fluid level and top off. That seemed to do the trick on my car. Hope this helps, Russ

Thats correct. Then I started the engine & repeated the process.
