Speaking of Seals

Can new seals/rebuild kits be found for older Shimano levers (BL-555,556,755,756)?

I really don't know how I developed a leak. In fact It wasn't convinced that I really had a leak as I couldn't see any obvious problem. I just found that I had very poor performance and lots of noise.

I had replaced the pads a couple of times. Each time they would be a bit better for a while before they deteriorated again. I eventually consulted this forum and the general opinion was that I had a leak and that my pads were getting contaminated.

This all made sense, but the thing that didn't make sense was that I couldn't see a leak and that I didn't seem to be losing hydraulic pressure,
