Steering pump questions

I swapped the vacuum pump today but while trying to tighten the steering pump belt, I pushed it the wrong way and the #@$# plastic hose nipple broke off.

It will be Monday before I can get the money to replace the pump. Even then I'll have to drive about 30 miles to get the money and parts.

So first, will driving the truck without the pump do any harm (other than to my arms)?

Second, seems to me that I saw a post about replacing these plastic pumps with an older, all metal pump. Any ideas on that?

This photo album shows how to swap to the Saginaw pump on serpentine gassers. Yours would be very similar.
