The red seals used on later B20 and B30 work great, gotta
eithier have a modified seal carrier or one from a later model.
IPD modifies and sells updated old ones exchange.

Shudder is aggravated by soft engine/tranny mounts,
which are a very common problem especially if you have
oil leaks. If I were you I'd replace all 3 mounts unless
they are obviously new or near-new. --

George is right. You should know that the rear seal in your engine is probably a simple old felt seal, and putting a new felt seal in it will not stop the leak if the engine has excessive blow-by or your PCV system isn't working properly (I don't remember if '64 has PCV or not). Converting to a "lip" type seal would be better if you have a lot of blow-by.---Brian
