A/C Compressor MJ167 or SWP123

My 76 had the SWP123 compressor in it which I mostly rebuilt.The problem is that the front seal is blown and I'm having a hard time finding someone who has one. Polar Bear has one for special order, but they can't tell me a lead time. I've hear that the MJ167 is a better unit, it was supposed to be on a 76, and I can get one from Autozone for less than the rarer SWP123. Does it mount up the same and I just screw my high side fitting on? I rebuilt my hoses with retrofit crimp ferules, had a local hose shop crimp them, put on a new drier, blew out the lines with nitrogen, pulled a vacuum, and all was fine until I started putting freon in and the oil squirted out the front. Funny how shops can rebuild the SWP123, but nobody knows where to get a front seal kit.
