tdi vs v8 clutch plate

I've got a question for the experts....I'm working on a project and need a 9.5 inch land rover clutch plate that will work with an R380 removed from a 1996 v8 discovery (NAS). I understand the v8 clutch plate is 10.5 and won't work but I've received conflicting information regarding the 9.5 tdi clutch...is the spline count the same? My v8 clutch plate is for a 23 spline shaft...is the tdi spline count/diameter the same? Could someone with access to both a v8 and tdi compare the two for me?

Thanks in advance
Frank

According to rock auto the 300 tdi clutch plate is 23 spline. I could be wrong, but I think all you will need is a custom pilot bushing with the tdi od and v8 id and just use off the shelf 300 tdi stuff for the rest

I appreciate the response. The kit I have purchased comes with the proper pilot bearing...I was just hoping someone knew for sure if the shaft size and spline count were the same between the v8 & tdi

The spline sizes are the same. The engagement depth of the splines and pilot bearing diameter and depth are different.

Does the spline depth difference affect functionality?

I think the problem is using a V8 input shaft on a 300TDI (not enough spline engagement on the cliutch). It is probably okay in the other direction with the right custom pilot bearing but I don't know anyone that tried.
