If your planning to replace the engine's rear seal if it is a one piece seal it can't be replaced with the engine in ,Ckeck the parts store and find out. Second I would at least change the main Bearings ,when they are worn threw the babbit in to the copper over lay the crank is lose working the seal to death. A new high volume oil pump would be a plus to Made your mistake 30 years ago Good luck
