Push Rod Tube Seals

So it's been awhile since I've been in the 914 game....10 years. I found a really nice 74 2.0 locally for a friend of mine in Phoenix and I'm trying to sort out all the bugs before I drive it over to him. After I picked it up one thing led to another and now it's on jackstands in my garage with the engine pulled. I'm sorting all the small leaks and painting the tin.
Viton made seals was what I remember as lasting on the push rod tubes, but now I don't see that listed anymore. Does anybody have any suggestions? I remember the regular seals were junk after a year and Viton was the only way to go.

Yes Viton are the seals to get. It also helps to apply a smear of thread sealant in the groove prior to placing the o-ring. This will ensure the leak free tubes for some time after install.
