Default 1983 original Bendix Master Cylinder service kit

Hi all,
I'm trying to find a service kit for a 1983 Volvo/Bendix branded brake master cylinder and all the kits I am seeing on ebay etc have a rear seal that is way too big to fit. It's a 20.6mm internal bore with 2 outlet ports (plus a stop pin and blanked off port) it is non ABS.
I'm pretty sure the rear seal is passing fluid into the servo (the brake pressure compensator is dry and there are no other leaks)
If anyone has a working cylinder for sale or info on where to find the correct service kit please let me know.

There are usually a few on E-Bay , it extremely rare for one to leak even after 40 years ...

My mate who bought my 84 360 bought a rebuild kit for his as it was leaking when I sold it to him so it had a very spongy pedal. He put it back together and it was worse and leaking from everywhere! In the end he just bought a new cylinder off eBay.

The earlier mk2 360 has the brake pipes on the opposite side to the mk3, they don't seem to sell mk2 ones so he had to make new longer pipes too.
