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.

This is my 901 Trans with the pull style arm and hole for the Bowden tube
