Default Tiny hydraulic power

Looking for cheap means to run a few cylinders on 12v for my boat motor. Replacement tilt parts are $$$$

I saw a few new 1qt-2qt systems for $200 or so. Wasnt sure if there were other ideas for small used ones?

Have dpdt momentary switches already wired, used a linear actuator last year. Didnt expect to last more than a few years, but only lasted one season...

Also curious about whether i need a valve for circulate/bypass. Figured on using double acting cylinder so it locks in on tilt well.

I have a small hydraulic unit that I was going to use for a bender. But whet a different way. it is 12 volts. It is a hydraulic unit for a motor home to run the hydraulic lift/lever cylinders.
Never used.
Let me know if you are interested.

I'm watching this one. I need to somehow do hydraulic lift on my expo camper. The linear actuators keep failing.
