B&G Autopilot Ram Rebuild - Where?

I have a B&G T1 hydraulic ram unit that has leaked its fluid. These are sealed units w/no reservoir. I've heard that "most" hydraulic shops can rebuild these with standard seals, but have not found anyone near Key West that will touch it.

B&G wants an outrageous price ($525) for a seal kit. I've heard that others had theirs rebuilt for around $100 total.

Anyone know of a hydraulics shop in south Florida that can do this? I assume I'll have to travel to Miami to get this done...

Hi Mark, I have noticed your post re the B & G T1 ram drive. I have the same unit and mine has started leaking a little oil after 13 years. can you give me any advice how you dealt with the oil leak on your unit please.
