The 12" is for a dual mass flywheel and the 13 is for a single mass flywheel. I highly recommend swapping to a single if you have the dual mass, as they are the weak link in the drivetrain. You'll destroy a dual mass flywheel before the clutch goes. Trust me, there is a reason I don't have one anymore.

i do have the dual mass but i dont have the 800+ to swap to a single at the moment but i know for sure that its still good and its the clutch thats shot. i got 235 on the OE clutch. i am suprised it lasted as long as it did

you dont need 800+ for a conversion... look into the valair clutches here: ValAir Performance Diesel Clutches

the stock replacement 13" single disk is under 500 bucks

PM me if you need any other info

I'd say bite the bullet and pay a little extra now, when i bought my '95 it had a BRAND NEW dual-mass flywheel and clutch in it with less than 200 miles on it when i got it, about 10k down the road it went bye bye. I hadn't abused it either, without going into the horror story of trying to get my rig running again, it wound up costing almost $2000. You might save money at first but if something happens to you like it did me it's really gonna hurt your wallet. Also, i've noticed that they tend to go out at the least opportune time, I got to drive 400 miles clutchless.
