Default Eng hatch cylinder help??

I have 2 engine hatch cylinders that can no longer be repaired off a 1985 12 meter fountain and not sure how to find some replacements? There arent any markings on these cylinders and hoping someone may have an idea on were to find some? Or options with a different style replacement since I assume these are probably obsolete? The have about a 8 1/2" stoke and when fulled extended are 18". Thanks for any help guys!

Tried to get them repaired but there is a groove in the cylinder, tried to repolish and put new seal in and still leaks. I looked on Hardin and cant seem to find this cylinder Greatguy66 says they carry? Do you know of a part number?

Thanks O.C., might take it if your willing to part with it... just need to find another to match!

OC is correct. Probably a TRS power assist is what it looks like to me.

It could be spray welded and turned down. Then hard chromed. Or maybe just hard chromed. I've had cylinders repaired b4. Not sure if its cost effective though...
