Seiko Seiki SS170PSS Shaft Seal

Year: 1988
Make: Seiko Seiki
Model: SS170PSS
Engine Size: NA
Refrigerant Type: R12
Country of Origin: United States

I have a Seiko Seiki SS170PSS compressor with a shaft seal leaking. After inquiring with Santech about the right seal kit I purchased what was recommended; a triple-lip seal made by Santech. After taking the compressor apart it turns out that it has a two piece seal (steel seat, carbon seat). Does anyone know if it is possible to retrofit the lip seal instead of the two piece on this compressor?

Thanks for any input.

Update: for any future searchers; nope, not possible.
