Powergear Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

Ahhhh, another post. As you can see, I have been busy with early season projects. Prior to storage, I had noticed my RR lift was starting to leak pretty bad. Powergear, with external spring. My question to the group...
Has anyone rebuilt a similar unit, degree of dificulty and cost? Is it better to just plunk down the money and buy a new unit? Anything else that I should know if I take the rebuild project on?

I'm not sure where I required it, but I have a Power Gear repair download which is very descriptive on replacement of seals on thier units. I suspect that repair vs replacement will depend on cost/labor for repair compared to cost of new/rebuilt unit.
