[urq] 83 ur-q brake servo rebuild questions

Hello all
I researched this a while ago and some kind soul pointed me in the direction 
of a great web page with pictues of a dismantled alloy servo that enabled me 
to dismantle a spare one I had. With a bit of research and some help from 
friends on the urq-list I managed to get all the seals and o-rings to 
rebuild the servo although thankfully I have not had to use it yet (equally 
I don't know whether it works properly or not - can't see why it shouldn't).
The link to the web page is: http://www.quattro.ca/Urq/Brake_servo_guide.pdf
Hope this helps.
I'm sure I got one or more of the seals from Alan Pemberton (on urq list) 
who is somewhere on west coast Canada I think.
Hope this helps

I don't usually go for spamming multiple lists, but since you didn't include
the urq group I'll make sure folks there see your request.

I still don't have BTDT on the actual rebuild, but I can tell you that yes,
there are two types of hydraulic brake servos on the urq, a cast iron unit
and an alloy unit.  You may want to search the archives and the KB, I do
recall someone posting the list of parts required.

I'm hoping this will be a quick one, but I think I know better...

I'm looking for information on a rebuild for the hydraulic brake servo on an
'83 ur-q.
I've seen a pictures and a procedure on the rebuild but I'm not finding
information like part numbers for the seals/o-rings, etc.

Also are they're more than one type of servo used based on vintage or vin

Any btdt?
