The 12V flywheel is slightly larger in diameter than the 6V. The pitch
of the teeth is approx. the same, so add 21 more teeth and you need a
slight larger flywheel.

Hmm, that is funny. all the T-3's that I have pulled apart have had the
200mm clutch. Looks like CIP has a problem with their listing. My '64
Ghia was a virgin when I pulled the engine, and it is 200mm.

the diameter of the bendix gear will be smaller on the 12V starter. It
will have the same number of teeth, IIRC.
