55 chevy, 265 rear main seal

I'm trying to replace a rear main seal on a 1955, 265 small block chevy. The orgional seal is a roap type. Does anyone know of a 2 piece lip seal that will fit the block and main cap. The engine is in the car and the replacement roap seal installation into the block bite's. The seal won't pull into place with the installer and it keeps pealing it back even with the main's loosened up and the crank droped down. Some one must make a 2 piece lip seal that will fir this app. Does anyone have any ideas for me other than pulling the engine and crank and installing the roap seal per the repair manual. tks' sling
