Those old valves run the spool directly in the casting. When they start leaking internally there are no seals to replace and the valves are toast. The only seals are on the externals openings in the valve body. They also lack one of the nicer features of a modern valve (load checks) which is another reason to move on to something a bit more sophisticated.
That link is to a suitable valve - the "A" port on the SA spool is not used and would be plugged after installation. See my post for a less expensive solution.
