Chris Locke (lister) and I did it once.  Dealer said we needed a new one
to the tune of $1200 (yeah, on a 4000Q!, that'll happen!) So we figured
what do we have to lose?
Took it apart, cleaned it, replaced the o rings (sizes commonly
available everywhere). That was about 5 years ago, and its still running
perfectly.  Phil is right though, it was a sucky job, but for that kind
of  $, Id do it again!
