Hi Ross

Yes. The flywheel will be made to bolt to the ford V6 crank then mate up to the toyota clutch. In theory it will need to be 20mm thicker but as the V6 originally came as a automatic only the flywheel will actually be thinner than the OE market one fitted to the V6.
As regards the starter this will be kept standard and in it's original position but using an upgraded unit. The clutch operation will either be kept as standard or I may use turbonutters idea of an hydraulic thrust bearing.Keeping things simple.
You mention that the gearbox input shaft will not engage in the crank. Transverse engines do not generally engage in the crank like inline set ups and there is no bearing nosing machined on the end of the gearbox input/drive shaft. See photo.
