Might be worth a simple strip, clean, lube and rebuild if you haven't tried that already? I've cured a few leaking taps that way myself  (-P).

You can still buy seals brand new and they are really cheap.. Fowlers sorted out some for mine on the 3MA and for a few quid it was fixed.

Failing that an RGV one is a common replacement and does away with the vacuum diaphragm system - the cause of most leaks.
