In general, it seems pretty simple: polishing scored cylinders and pistons, replacing worn seals, replacing excessively worn or damaged parts, etc. However, for an ordinary person, the problem I've run into is finding a readily accessible source of parts, as the hydraulic repair industry seems to be a closed fraternity.
