I bought a pair of new ones off S J Sportscars down here in Devon a couple of weeks ago, off the shelf.
Hope this may help
Dont forget that you dont get the knurled hand brake adjuster that fits in the back of the wheel cylinder with a new set have to use the originals, so they do look a bit different to start with.
Have a set of new wheel cylinder rubbers for them on the shelf, that I bought to re do mine, but problems with brake pipes scupered that idea, I paid 6.00 plus 2.00 postage if any use to you, make me an offer

Did you get your rear wheel cylinders in the end.

Have done same to mine as I removed the diff unit complete and used this method to get to the handbrake linkage and unbolt the pipes as seemed no sensible method of getting up there, but mainly to do the wheel cylinders and as removing diff, cleaned and painted up the unit and back plates prior to reassembly as was on bench.
Whilst was there replaced rear rubber hoses with Goodritch stainless ones, all my metal brake pipes were replaced with copper ones when chassis was changed a few years ago so no rust issues in that department.
Hope all goes well.
