Ancient Unipass linear actuator - Any Hope?

My boat came "equipped" with the Unipass linear actuator below, neatly wired into the black box shown, with a cable from the box leading...nowhere.

The "head" unit for the autopilot had been removed a long time ago.

Does anyone have access to any manuals on this unit? Or just:

1) How to test the actuator to see if it still works?
2) Is it even possible to connect a new "head" to this old unit?
