Default Ford 550 backhoe leaking hydraulic fluid

Anybody ever changed the backhoe control seals in a Ford 550?

Mine are leaking. I hope that I can do the job without taking the backhoe off the tractor.

Thanks!

spool control valves. It looks like that they are held in by two allen head screws. I kinda figured that it would be (hopefully) 25 cent o rings.... The problem is that it is a real tight place to work. The frame of the backhoe has access holes that I can get one hand through the opening at a time.
