I looked up apple hydraulics based on someone else's recommendation, but
rebuild is more than the new parts. Is there a reason that rebuilt would
better than replaced?
what you really want Apple to do is sleeve the cylinder with brass - send
them the bare cylinder, then rebuild with your original internal parts (if
they're good - they usually are) and a new seal set. Replacement cylinders
currently available are generally Chinese reproductions (even the ones in
TRW boxes) and are notorious for poor quality and early failure. I've never
had any problem with resleeved cylinders - the brass will not corrode and
pit like the original steel bore.
