Hydraulic steering overhaul

I have been trying toget someone to recondition my latham steering ram for over two weeks now and know one will touch it! Either because its latham or because they dont want to put there name against it "just incase" it fails! I cant believe that latham being one of the best steering manufacturers around dont have a dealer in the uk! HELP anyone?

yes mate.Thay wont touch it unless i get an overhaul kit from latham themselves! But latham wont sell me one and say it has to go back to them! I dont see where the problem is if the ram is pressure tested after work is carried out?? Cheers anyway mate!
