ST7000 w/ Hydraulic Systems - SPARES

Was curious if someone else who is using an Autohelm ST7000 in conjunction with a fully hydraulic steering system can recommend what would be the 'don't-leave-home-without' list of spares to take with us before heading off across the Pacific.

I have some experience with cable self steering rigs, but never before this one with the brain running the hydraulic pump. Been sailing on it now for a year in Mexico with no troubles so haven't really needed to delve into the guts.

Re: ST7000 w/ hydraulic systems - SPARES

Just my thought, but in this order with the first two being most critical:

1) computer,
2) pump,
3) control head,
4) compass
