I don't know whether you saw my quest for right o-ring on threaded shaft (seals brake fluid from e-brake cavity) but
if you know what to use, please, let me know.  I used EPDM o-ring (ethylen propylen).  It is has the best resistance
to brake fluids but I could not find any info how it is compatible with synthetic grease like Valvoline SynPower which
I used in e-breake cavity.  I left one o-ring in the grease for experiment and it swelled a lot.  I will watch for a
leak from e-brake mechanism.

P.S. Chicago Rawhide is a good source for double lip grease seal for e-brake.
