t-18a tranny input shaft?

hey does anyone know what size input shaft the scout t-18a tranny uses, its going in my 51 willys. i bought a crate 350 and the bellhousing kit from advance adapters for it, i thought the shaft was a 10 spline 1 1/16" but the clutch disc wont fit for some reason... international t-18's are very hard to find info on, are they the same size as a jeep t-18?

It's either 1-1/16 or 1-1/8" that's the only sizes that the T-18 came with.

There were various lengths, I think 3 different lengths. but that would be quite obvious. Are you trying to mount the tranny to teh bellhousing right now, or have you test fit the clutch on the input shaft and it's not fitting? If you're test fitting and it's just not fitting over the splines, then it'll be the 1-1/8" that you need.

If you're trying to mate the tranny to the bellhousing and install it and it's not fully seating, make sure you have the proper length input shaft and the shaft isn't bottoming out.
