Default hydraulic ram - on Genny Slide

My Genny slide is driven by a hydraulic ram. Uses the same motor and fluid as the HWH jacks.

The ram is leaking badly. Is the ram rebuildable? Anyone know where I may buy the seals?

Are they simply o-rings?

Thank you,

Doug

Thank you. Do I need to cap the lines after pulling the ram? If so, any idea of what threads / fittings I'd use?
Or could I just leave them open as long as I don't apply any pressure to that system?
I could zip tie them in a large gallon ziploc?
Thank you,

Doug
