Hydro Boost?

Not at all familiar with this system. I understand it takes the place of the vacuum booster set up on gassers. Noticed mine is leaking brake fluid under unit behind res. Not bad just wet. Any ideas? Do I have to replace the whole unit or can I reseal it? Thanks ya'll for any info.

If it's leaking brake fluid, it's not the hydraboost but rather the master cylinder. This is replaced or rebuilt just like it would be on a vacuum based system.
