Pilot bearing for early SC crank

For my re-build of my 1980 911 SC 3.0 engine, I sourced a standard/standard crank. The original crank was damaged. The new (to me ) crank was an early SC crank which uses a different type of pilot bearing. This bearing does not have the three screw holes in the mating surface. I am confused as to how I am going to attach the bearing to the crank before I put the clutch on the flywheel. From what I can tell, once I place the clutch on the flywheel, there will be no way to secure the bearing in place mahing alignment of the clutch impossible.
Does anyone have any experience with these older SC cranks and pilot bearings?
Any help will be appreciated! I an trying to get my engine in the car over the weekend and I am hoping I will not have to wait!
Thanks again and Happy New Year!
