Matt, the '70-'71 911 clutch used the pull style release arm. You know that Mickey Mouse deal where the bowden tube actually pushed the release arm. That will not work on the '68 box with out some mods. IMO you don't want to use those for anything anyway, AHIK.

As far as the clutch itself goes, it will depend on what flywheel and therefore the pressure plate you have. The '68 and '69 used a 215mm clutch, in '70 it was increased to 225mm. At any rate the '68 trans input shaft is the same as a VW so you have some flexibility as far as what clutch you use. The issue will be how to actuate what ever pressure plate you can get to work.

EDIT: Same thing applies to the '69 trans.
