If you are going to continue to use your 901 transmission, you'll need to keep the same 215 mm flywheel. The '70 cars which used the 225 mm flywheel also used the used a 911 gearbox with the the appropriate linkage for the pull-type clutch. Unless you want to replace your gearbox (or at least the clutch portions) as well as your clutch cable, you will need to stay with the earlier push-style clutch and flywheel. There are people who do offer upgraded clutches for the earlier flywheel/gearbox versions and I've seen them just posted recently (last 2 weeks?) on this BBS. Do a search on "clutch" and see what you find.
