Old tractor hydraulics. Any pros here?

I've got a 1951 Harry Fergusson TO-20, (think Ford 8N) that I picked up about 8 years ago for brush hogging and work around the house. I got it cheap and rebuilt the motor myself shortly after purchase. The only issue it still has is the three point lift is slow to drop, taking several minutes to lower, regadless of how heavy the implement on the other end of the lift is. I have been dealing with it all this time, but it is a pain when it comes to grading and isn't practical for running an auger

When I got it, the mineral oil in the transmission and hydraulic pump was cloudy due to emulsion. I changed and flushed all of it with fresh oil and have stored the tractor under cover ever since. How difficult is it to rebuild one of these pumps? Does anyone here have diagrams/instructions for doing this?
