I suspect that the brakes have not be serviced in years, this leads to corrosion out on the slave cylinders in the wheels.
The old brake fluid absorbs water, rusting the cylinders.

The seal kits are 33.74 and 29.94 from Introcar, that's not that bad really.
It gets expensive if the master cylinders need replacing, but if they're badly corroded, they can be sleeved.

It's too bad they couldn't have used the proper hidem-wire binding, instead they opted for the wrong grey generic stuff one find on a boat.
