Hi,
Yes there are places that rebuild them, I don’t have the info at the moment as I’m away from my computer.
If you want to try to rebuild it yourself call this place for the parts, they were able to source everything for me:

They even had the leather seal for the vacuum piston.
Best of luck

Was it pretty tough? Looks like there’s a lot to one.

If you have the mechanical aptitude and a manual, they're not too bad. They ARE spring loaded however, and you may have to fab a tool or two.
