Autopilot Pump Repair

Does anyone know where I can get my autopilot pump repaired. This summer I had the Simrad RPU 160 pump fail. A spare Raymarine Type 2 pump was onboard so down time was at a minimum.
The motor seems to be working, so I assume that it is in the hydraulic pump part.

Several years ago on a different boat I had a pump go out and I had the pleasure of hand steering from N of Cape Caution back to Olympia WA, a spare pump will now always be in the spare parts locker.

Thanks
Stabi

Hydraulic shop. Although its probably a pretty simple job to replace the seals. Unless water got into it, there is little else to wear.

Thank You
I was hoping that someone could recommend a specific shop that is familiar with these pumps, or is that not necessary, a hydraulic shop is a hydraulic. No Water got into it.
The SeaStar does look like a good pump.
