Our website is a wonderful resource, if you browse here it will let you know of any parts interchangeability with easier to find alternatives.

Looks like you will get away with some type 1 bits, which any of the usual suppliers will be able to sort you out with. Rebuild bits don't tend to be offered these days as lots of people returned them claiming they were faulty. Where as the real issue usually turned out to be scored to pitted cylinder bores, meaning a new cylinder was needed anyway. Custom and Commercial and VWheritage seem to have quite a selection. Id check them out.

And I hope you don't mine, i've taken the liberty of changing break to brake
