Why do you think that a seal kit is necessary? Likely not, as all parts are
available indivudually as required. Find the leak!

DFI if IAB!

Probably just the seal type for the banjo bolts and maybe also the bolt
size, as I recall.

I've been using the hydraulic fluid for my Ford Quatro tractor with no
problems for many years.
