Default Power steering pump vane missing

Some how today while rebuilding the steering pump I lost one of the vanes. Am I screwed and have to find one in the junk yard or will I be okay missing one?

It would be unbalanced, and have much lower capacity. I see rebuilt ones on Rock Auto for my 1990, ~$120/ea.

Or better yet, find that vane! :-)

You know how expensive they are right. Did mine for $15. Wasn't that bad.
