The first thing you have to ask yourself is "where did the old fluid go in the first place?"
Most likely, it is leaking from the steering rack itself, and into the dust boots, which is why you can't see it.
If the system was completely empty, you will have to fill it, and turn the wheel from left to right, all the way from "lock to lock" each way. This can be hard, but that's what you have to do to get the fluid back into the system.
It "should" only take 3-4 complete turns back and forth for it to work, unless there's a major leak. Then, top off the system.
Look under the car for any signs of fluid "weeping" from out of the steering rack.

Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.

aside from any obvious leaks from the hoses or fittings, or the pump. typically if you were to pull the rubber dust boots of the ends of the rack, any fluid inside the boot would indicate a bad rack. hope this helps.

If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!

Hey, here's the procedure, disable air bag, if equipped w/ one, disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Turn off engine immediately. Re-attach hose. Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt. Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove pump.
Install in reverse order. Adjust belt tension,fill ps reservoir and bleed any air from the system (to bleed air from system, fill reservoir, start engine and allow to idle, turn wheel from side to side all the way several times. Shut off, fill if necessary.
. Tighten bolts to : Thru bolt 30 ft lbs., mounting nut 16 ft lbs.
