Thanks to the efforts of Mike Sylvester, I have in my hand a seal that can replaced the emergency brake mechanism seal on the Girling rear calipers. As Frank Amoroso and others have posted in the past, the seal is manufactured by Chicago Rawhide.

It's a rear output transmission oil seal (similar to the engine crank seal, but much smaller) part number CR 16x24x7 HMS4 R

If you have a NAPA automotive parts store nearby, you can order it using NAPA part number 6405:

NAPA's price is $2.99 per seal.

I hope that those of you that are pondering rebuilding your rear calipers find this helpful.
