Clutch disk needed! 1" 23 spline in a 9" or 230mm for the GTD/UN1 combo

Hello all.
I just purchased the solid 1 piece shaft from GTO racing for my UN1 in a 1" 23 spline. The flywheel I have is the smaller 121 tooth essex type that uses a 9" (230mm) disk.
I am in California USA and am having a little bit of difficulty sourcing a disk in that size and need it to hold about 450 ftlb tourque. Help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I am a bit puzzled by the 23 spline bit. I thought the Renault UN1 was 21 spline? I don't know if the GTO racing one is different but the AP Racing driven plate on my GTD is 21 spline as was the original Renault plate. The flywheel is the original GTD fitment redrilled and tapped to take the AP clutch. Renault UN1 21 Turbo box.
I have a new AP Racing Driven Plate- CP2346-42 in front of me now and it is definitely 21 spline ( I have counted!) and 9.5 " diameter.
Cheers
Mike

Didn't the 1 piece shaft kit offer a option of Ford or original Renault splines ? Could it be that ?
yes I ordered the Ford type. but now i have California clutch asking me what year Ford ESSEX v6 flywheel did the GTD use. The pressure plate is too far gone to reuse and a new one needs to be sourced.

Thank you! Yes it is. It came with the headers you see, but I fabricated the straight pipes and v bands and welded them to a new set of collectors.
I was looking at your photos on Instagram. Is your vehicle a gtd40 body? The engine is 302? I got gtd 302. A little change of the engine from now on. I'm thinking of installing the Holy Sniper efi. I'm thinking about an exhaust.

It is. It a GTD indeed. I have the original collectors and piped still as well as a few things if you are interested. I am also going to be changing the wheels and tires for a track set soon. How do you like your GTD?
 
I want to change gtd to my taste from now on. I don't like engine horsepower and exhaust noise yet. It's a very difficult car to ride, but I like the style. It feels like a sexy woman.
