Actually, Bernie, that's Tool  VW 1623 you're saying I'll have to make if I
can find a bolt that large.  1622 is a flat piece of metal with a hook on
the end to hold onto the clutch.  I found a large pair of waterpump pliers
did that job because the bolt isn't on with a high torque.  Anyone know how
big that thread is on the inside of the clutch?
