I did phone a couple of ABS/brake specialists and from what they were saying, and I don’t understand why but, apparently they can’t be rebuilt?
I have to be honest, this did surprise me as although it could wind up being expensive, my general belief was that if it had been manufactured, it could be remanufactured?

I’d never thought of that, I’d never even considered it as a possibility. Has it been done before?

Naki corrected me, apparently yours is not the old hydraulic unit but early later model so I'd go with a used unit, then you could try rebuilding that. I would think that would be best option for now.
