Anybody know what would happen if I did NOT disable the front load leveling section of my V12 power steering pump and only plugged the outlet? I was able to disable the load leveling section on the original pump but it developed a leak from the main shaft seal. So, I bought another one and I can't for the life of me get the caps off to pull out the load leveling plungers. I've used a hand impact driver (same as I used on the other pump) but only managed to tear up the slots on the head of the plug. What would happen if I just plugged the outlet?

I think you might have better luck if you looped them

Adrian, I was finally able to get the plugs out. I had to use my Dremel to cut a wide slot in the top of the plug and build a "tool" to get them out. I took a piece of 3/16 steel about 3/4 inch wide and 8 inches long, welded another piece the same size to the top (the cross section looked like a "T"). I placed this "tool" in the slot I cut and clamped it down loosely with a C clamp, put a 3 foot pipe on the end and they finally broke loose.
