Clutch fork - difference between V8 and TDI for R380?

I was going to replace my worn clutch fork with a new one. I see these on eBay listed as "heavy duty" which have the reinforced tab on them.. but they say "NOT V8" on the ads.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DEFENDER-CLU...28f07f&vxp=mtr

Is there really a difference between V8 and non-V8 R380? Why would it be listed as such?

Point to consider: I used my existing when I swapped in the 300TDI and I am pretty sure I used the existing clutch fork...

If you made that work, you must be magic...they are much different

I shot these to show the difference, the FTC2957 is Tdi and the 576137 is mostly all V8 engines, both for R380.

If you put the 300TDI onto a V8 gearbox, you best fix THAT... The input shaft is the wrong length, the clutch spline engagement is wrong and the pilot bearing is not working.

It's been years ago I did this with a kit of parts provided by a guy in the UK. No magic - there was a different bell housing, pilot bearing, different clutch/pressure plate and a few other things involved - I just don't *remember* a different fork but this was many projects ago. It's been working great... maybe 4-5 years and 10s of K of miles.
