Trying to keep my 944 roadworthy

I had a clicking coming from the transmission. Pulled the trans; found I had a cracked Flexplate and two different size axles. I am in search of a Flexplate #944.421.121.00.
The axle I need is approx 22" long. Does anyone have these parts?
Thank you

It would help if you provided the year of your car.

Common fix is to replace the troublesome rubber dampener with a regular clutch disc and pressure plate. Do a search.

yes, you remove the auto flex plate (assuming you are referring to the rubber thing) at the engine-end and bolt on a good used manual flywheel, clutch disc and pressure plate.

no other clutch parts or pilot bearing required, all these parts serve to do is provide a solid connection between the crankshaft and the driveshaft.

and yes the automatic uses different-length axles.
