Default .18 enging clutch/transmission setup

Hello all,

i am new to this forum, a beginner in the nitro rc field. I do have some knowledge of mechanics, engines, but came here looking for assistance.So to start off in the hobby i purchased a cheap 1/10th scale car to see if it was something i was interested in putting more money into.It turns out i like it, and i purchased a .18 engine to replace the .15 that came with the car.

I am new to the site so i cant post links yet, but i need to know what parts i should order for the clutch/transmission of the new engine. I had previously been ordering my parts from rctoyhouse.com, but i will try other websites.

does anyone recognize this engine at all? it came with no instructions/info

any help is greatly appreciated

really need to know what brand of car, and type of clutch on it.
some have a 3 shoe clutch with springs holding them in place, with a round clutch bell.
a centax clutch has 3 shoes inside, then a retaining plate and another full round clutch shoe with a tapered clutch bell.

an 18 engine should retain the same type of clutch , also make sure the engine is same crank type, SG or std. one will be long after the thread, and one will be short threaded shaft. the long type is SG shaft.
