Dixie Chopper hydro leak

I have a 2000 XW2503 with oil leaks where the steering levers attach to the hydros. The levers are held in place with a bolt and roll pin. My question: Are those seals something I can replace myself? I don't want to remove the levers tell I know what I am getting into.

You can pop the old seals out with a pick or small screwdriver then install the new ones with a deep socket. Just be careful not to damage the shaft/housing removing and make sure the socket is the same diameter as the seal.

Take the numbers off the white label on the pump with you to get the new seals....
