2000 2.5L oil pump seal?

Hey Guys, I'm working on a friend's 2000 2.5l and I'm replacing the timing belt and all the components to go with. The only problem I've run into is that I can't seem to find the oil pump seal (aux/balance shaft seal) at any parts stores (NAPA, PepBoys, Kragen, etc.). No one seems to have the oil pump seal or aux/balance shaft seal by the description. I have searched online and nothing comes up for the oil pump seal. I have a feeling that maybe the crank seal or cam seal are the same size as the oil pump seal and that either one of those is what is used to replace the oil pump seal? I'm hoping that one of you who have done this could tell me to confirm what seal I need to replace the oil pump seal. What seal to use to replace the oil pump seal?
Thanks in advance guys!

Oil pumps use mated surfaces , there are no gaskets on them. Just metal to metal.
Do you mean the water pump seal ?
That would be the only pump having to do with a timing belt change.

I'm looking for a ribbed seal like the crank seal or cam shaft seal.

From what I have read about the 2000 2.5L the oil pump was moved on the block to the location of the balance shaft, so they are essentially one. There is a metal gasket for the oil pump housing to the block and also a ribbed type seal for the shaft, I need the seal (not the gasket). The oil pump/balance shaft is located on the driver's side of the block and the seal is behind the pulley.

No, I do not mean the water pump gasket(o-ring)

I will take pics when I get the chance.
Thanks again
