What clutch for my CJ

Hello all.

My clutch has started to slip, so I'm planning to replace it now before the wheeling season kicks of. My problem is that I am not sure which clutch will fit... It is a 85 CJ7. The original 258 has been swapped for a 304 by previous owner, origin unknown... The transmission is a T176, which I think is the original.

I have been reading up and think I am closing in... As far as I understand, I can use both 10.5" and 11" disc, and that it has to be 1 1/8 diameter shaft, 10 spline.

Can anyone confirm this?

4WD does not mention the diameter or spline count for their products... But I guess it will be OK when ordering for the correct year, as that depends on the transmission?

Any recommendations on which cluth kit to buy? The Jeep is used onroad and offroad. 33" tires. The engine has had some work done to it and is guestimated at 200HP.
