Clutch Pressure plate for Buick 215 V8

I have been trying to find a pressure plate for my 1961 Buick 215 V8, stock light flywheel. I would like to find a stock one so no mods are required to the fly wheel. Im adapting a T5 Ford WC, 1352-169, and will use a clutch plate with a 10 spline, 1 1/16 center for the T5.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks,
Virg

Virgil, What you need is a 10" Ford Long pattern Diaphram pressure plate. Ram list it for 64-79.

The GM late (say for a Camaro) V6 pressure plate and clutch also works. This gives a light pedal and still handles the HP. I believe a may have one in my stash. PM me if you are interested and I will seek it out and send you pictures. It is new and complete.

James, He has a Ford T5. Clutch splines are different. The Ford pressure plate I mentioned bolts right up. The Camaro pressure plate would have to have the flywheel redrilled to fit.
