Can anyone advise me about power steering racks for the 1991 Civic 1.6i-16 please?

Having owned a really great little 1991 1.4 16v version for the past 4 years I decided to get the more powerful 1.6i-16. However I did not realise that it did not come wth power steering as standard.........or maybe they did? The rack in mine looks exactly like the power steering version in my 1.4 so am I correct to assume that if I can get hold of a good rack with the pump and ancilliaries from a 1.4 it will go in as a straight swap?

The engine block I know is different but the mounting bolt holes look identical to the 1.4. Anyway, what is the correct version to get hold of and is there anyone out there with the parts for sale?

Another question relates to changing the brake fluid. Whilst this is usually a simple job, according to my dear old Haynes Manual, they advise not to try to bleed this yourself because of the ABS system. Just what is involved and is there a way to do it yourself?

Many thanks for any help.
