I will call Rockwall Marine tomorrow but hoping to get a ballpark price range.

There is a slow leak on the cylinder by the engine.

Please let me know the approximate cost to have it rebuilt/resealed?

I donít mind trying it myself but if it isnít too much Iíd like to have it done by a professional.

It is very easy to do yourself and seal kits are readily available on the internet. It's a one-person job until you need to bleed the system. There are Youtube videos you can watch.

Roughly $325 Or do it yourself for around $100(kit) which includes seals,wrench,and quart of fluid.

Very easy to order the parts and do it yourself.

its not really that hard. its usually the seals that go out. buy the rebuild kit and have a buddy help you bleed the line. make sure to turn left and right a bunch of times to bleed it while you pump in the fluid.

I just did mine and it wasn't hard at all and plenty of instructions on the web and will come with the kit also. $75 for the kit on ebay with tool and around $25 for a quart of fluid. I RECOMMEND 2 QTS OF FLUID just to replace all the old fluid. You won't see clear come out with just 1 qt.
