Not bleeding, leaking etc.where can I find 1/2" dia.ports/ fittings on bypass valves, pressure relief, equalizing valves etc.
You said there was no mechanical link. There "must" be a hydraulic link, otherwise one rudder simply wouldn't move.

If the boat doesn't have bypass valves fitted at the cylinders, then IMO it would be just about impossible to bleed the hydraulic link properly.

A source for good quality valves: Valves | Ball Valves, Check Valves, Pinch Valves & More - Swagelok

This stuff is used on oil refineries.

If you're in Aus, Sam Allen wholesale sells bypass valve assemblies (valve, 2 "T" fittings and 4 hydraulic hose connectors) for hydraulic steering.
