Correct clutch kit??? M103 Swap

Hello everyone,

I'm HOPEFULLY going swap a '89 190e 2.3 8v Manual 5 Speed, onto my currently 4-matic '90 260E Sportline.

I have sourced a brand new Single Mass Flywheel for a manual 2.6 M103. (190e 2.6 / 260e)

I am confused as to what is the correct clutch kit to use?

Regarding some information from here : manual transmission for m103 - Page 2 - Mercedes-Benz Forum : AMG Forums

Forum user bsmuwk on that thread states that the 190e 2.3 uses a 8.5" clutch disk, whilst the 260E / 300E uses a 9" clutch disk?

He also created an awesome documentation of his swap of a 2.3 5 speed into a 300CE Auto (I think), and in the part requirements is an 8.5" clutch set.

A little bit confused here, I would just like to know if anybody knows what the right one to use would be. Don't wanna mess up.

Thanks for any assistance anyone, much appreciated for taking the time to read my post.
