Identify Autopilot Pump

Can't post a picture right now, but hope some-one can help me with identification from my description.
Pump is 12v reversing type, came fitted to AutoHelm pilot about 10yrs ago.
Pump is all black, about 12-13" long, 3" dia. Motor is seperated from Hyd pump by a 2" aluminum casting cube which is hollowed out. Shafts from pump and motor project into the hollow casting, where they are joined by donut shaped dogs, which are locked unto the respective shafts by grub screws.
Pump is a 3 hose type. The solenoid is on the ram. Fluid return chamber has a top and a side entry port, all openings NPT.
Desperately need pump seal to drive shaft end.

C,mon guys, I'm Begging, owners want to go where it is warm.

Not Octopus-use them on my ComNavs. Does not appear to be foruno, simrad, siemens, raymarine standard issue.
It is a higher quality pump, IMO, than what we get presently.
I think it is English-built.

Re: Identify Autopilot Pump

There are many types of hydraulic pumps available. Unless you have a very restrictive configuration and simply wish to replace the pump, an equivalent displacement 12 volt (if that is your system) reversing hydraulic pump will work.
