Default clutch disc recommendations?

After losing most of the year to other things I'm finally going to replace the clutch on the 48. I have 2 clutch discs to choose from, one from Fort Wayne and then an NOS 48. Any advice on choices?

I would go w/the Fort Wayne disc . I have had one w/a Fort Wayne pressure plate for 5 yrs. now & no problems . I had my flywheel resurfaced at the same time , & I highly recommend you do the same . I also recommend getting your flywheel & pressure plate balanced together . - F F
