It was a while ago.
However I believe they were just regular O tings. I would go to a hydraulic shop that does cylinders for bulldozers etc. they have the big rings.
If you are in Sint Maarten, FKG has a great hydraulic shop. The also made me a hose for my stove covered in braided steel and then rubber.
They also made watermaker hoses for me with hydraulically swaged fittings and 2 hoses for the actuator on the brake.

Hi Eric: Thanks for the confirmation of what I am seeing in the diagram concerning all the seals and hydraulic fluid being in the end nearest the brake pads. From your experience were there just o-rings on that business end or were there lip or other types of more complex seals that I will need?
Is the diagram posted on this site somewhere?
All the best,
Gary S. Silver
