Default Who has the V8 cotter pin clutch for sale?

I am looking to purchase a V8 clutch with the cotter pins, not with the eclips.
Who has these for sale?

Yes, I realized the V8 clutch had nothing to do with the my original questions. Duh!

If you get a clutch with the E-clips you can drill the pins for cotters...

31:The pressure plate from Ft Wayne clutch came with the cotter pins, which I got after an E clip failure at an intersection. I initially thought the clutch arm cracked when putting it in gear. Got it home, the clutch arm seemed OK, removed the inspection plate and there was one of the release arms flopping around. Got it out and the pivot pin was gone(never to be found) and noticed that the pins were secured by the eclip. Looked at another old PP and it had the cotter pins.
What I have since noticed a couple of times, and do not know if this is universal, is that the so called 8N tractor pressure plate has the eclips, while the auto pressure plate with the counter weights on the arms (to increase pressure when rotating) have the cotter pins. As said, do not know if this is always true. Best to check when buying and installing.

Follow Up:

Thanks PC/SR for the lead on Fort Wayne Clutch. They are great to work with.

They have a first rate clutch with the cotter pins. In fact my engine builder said that after looking at the clutch that he will start to use them exclusively.

I have put about 50 miles on it and it works as advertised.

Is there a 'core' needed for this rebuilt pressure plate/clutch kit. Didn't see this mentioned on their web site.

Exactly what flywheel mods need to be made to accommodate the V8 pressure plate?

Russ the flywheel needs to have the raised ring machined off to install the V8 clutch. You just can not take a v8 clutch and bolt it to a standard flywheel.

I am not sure of new holes needed to be drilled in the flywheel for bolting the clutch.

Fort Wayne did not ask for a core.

You need to drill and thread new holes to match the V8 pressure plate. Easy to do when the flywheel is machined down.
