RT Gearbox Selector quadrant lever oil seal

I have been asked if anyone knows what the oil seal is for this point where the quadrant selector lever enters the Wilson pre-select gearbox,we also have need of two as w have gearboxes leaking at the point.

I cannot see in the AEC Regent lll manual any reference to this seal, so I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has knowledge of what the seal is, felt, rubber etc and a possible source of supply Thanks in advance

My bus number (if any): RTL 960, RMC 1458, RM 1585 and several RTs
