Default Insight Clutch Kit

does anyone know if Amazon sells either a LUK or an Exedy clutch kit for our car? Amazon sells one manufactured by Southeast Clutch. Impressive web sight but I don't know the quality?? When doing a HCH1 trans swap can a HCH1 clutch kit be used with the Insight flywheel? Thanks for the help

Per my research I found
The insight's clutch disc is 190mm
HCH1 clutch disc is 219mm

So it might bolt up, but might wear weird with the extra 14.5mm around the edge.

I've also been curious if the HCH1 flywheel would bolt up and clear since that would negate the need of modifying the HCH1 main shaft.

Edit: If someone has their HCH1 flywheel for measuring I can compare it to the G1 flywheel to see if it would be a likely candidate. I figure the potential issue would be distance between the senor ring and the crank mounting surface .

I got a HCH flywheel with the transmission that will be swapped into one of my Insights. Let me know what measurements you would like. I do not know if it has been surfaced in the past, so the thickness at the clutch disc surface may not be the same as a new one.

The most critical measurements are on the back side in relation to the position of the sensor ring. Also if it's not too much trouble could you weigh the flywheel?
