trans. never knows what size the clutch is.

Honda even used 200mm clutches on 212mm flywheel/pp combos.

Just run a 212mm setup, Contact WhoopeeDoo Racing on here for help.

Double check the input shaft size on the transmission. The clutch size itself depends on teh flywheel it is bolting to. a 212mm style flywheel will happily accept a 200 or 212mm clutch. But a 200mm style flywheel will NOT accept a 212mm clutch and pressure plate.

1988 and some early 1989 engines are where this issue lies. If the transmission has a code on it, check the date. If it indicates 88 or 89, you NEED to measure the input shaft that penetrates the pilot bearing in the flywheel. If it is the small version, you need to buy a 1988 D series clutch and flywheel. If it is the larger standard version that became the new common, you can simply buy a setup for 90-2000 (and up to 2005 D17)

SOME 1989 cars DID have the smaller shaft/spline

Again, find the tag or nameplate or casting, and post the numbers it has please.

That will be your way of finding the date.

Please also include the VIN number of the car, as that will also prove the build date of the car

None of the above info will help with the spline count.

Was the spline difference based on direct date of manufacture? Or was it based more on parts avialability as they were changing production?

Im not sure at all to be 100% honest.
