Generally felt to be 'unwise' to fit new seals - the bore is often badly rusted in the area where the seals don't run. Just get a new cylinder and be sure it will be reliable (and safe!) for many years to come.......

as bm says the bores are usually damaged and when you bleed the brakes the n ew rubbers are pushed onto the damaged area and they then get damaged and fail very soon afterwards put a new cylinder in the hard work is getting the cylinder out so why take the chance
