[Es2] correction on flywheels

I seem to have made an incorrect assumption on the 7A and 3B fws. After
mounting both on the crank, and making careful measurements today, I find
that the front-side timing pin that I thought was located differently is
actually in the same postition on both. It is the line on the outside
diameter (timing mark) that is different between the two. My bad. Sorry for
any confusion.

Seems that the best solution will be to scrap the 3B fw , and use a
lightened 7A with the ball type pilot bearing. I plan to use the 3B pressure
plate, just in case it has stronger springs, and the stock coupe release

Two questions:
1. What other 240mm clutch disks have the correct hub splines for the 01A
input shaft, but are made for the added torque?
2. Do I need to worry about the two long pins on the back-side of the fw?
These ARE way different between the two.

Humbly yours,
