Default Clutch Replacement FJ40 SBC Conversion

Well, my clutch went out the other day but luckily I was in the driveway. Now I have to replace it and thought I would see anyone had any suggestions on other services I should perform while I have my transmission dropped.

This is a SBC conversion to a stock 78 FJ40 4 speed.

Right now I am planning.
  • real main seal
    Transmission Front Nose Cone Seal
    some new gaskets in several places
    dual-seal speedometer housing

I was also wondering if anyone knew what clutch I need to get to replace the old one. Right now the clutch I have works with the stock toyota clutch plate. Everything I have see online (mostly centerforce) has the centerforce clutch with and aftermarket gm clutch plate. I probably should replace the clutch plate anyway but is it safe to assume the centerforce plate will work with my flywheel?

Any help you all can provide is much appreciated.
