Default Power steering quit

86 Acura Legend,
The power steering resevoir is full. No leaks. Belt is tight. So it's
the pump, the variable steering control? or the rack. What would be the
best way to trouble shoot this to find the problem?

Oops, belt was not tight, belt was gone! Found three pieces of it
when I took the belt guard off. Put on the new belt and sho nuff the
power steering now works. But, I found the engine mount bolts had been
stripped. One had a helicoil that holds tight the other needs one. I
also need several 10mm screws that were missing from the under car
windage tray.

And how I fixed the stipped motor mount bolt hole, that some stupid
jerk on steroids or used an impact wrench, had ****ed up.
I got a "just a little bigger"grade 8 bolt, and cut slots in it
with an air grinder cut off wheel, made a self tapping bolt. Screwed
that SOB right in there with a half inch breakover until it was good and
tight. Don't tell anyone of this trick. And if you do, be sure to tell
them to use at least a grade 8 bolt.
Fixed the car so good the owner wants it back instead of selling it
to me cheap like he was going to do when I went and got it and it looked
like a major expense.
