Help with converting to 10 speed Eaton

I have a DT466 with a SAE 2 flywheel housing. It has a 6 speed in it: FS-6406 model with a hydraulic pull clutch. It has a flat flywheel.

I want to install an eaton 10 speed roadranger model: RTX 15710B

It has a 2" input shaft with a sae 1 clutch housing bolted to it.

Can anyone tell me what I need as far as:

Clutch housing
Flywheel (if my flat flywheel wont work)

I'm thinking I will need a sae 2 clutch housing and will need to make a bracket to mount the slave cylinder. Not sure which bellhousing I would need. A part number or reference would be helpful.

The clutch--I'm unsure of since I'm staying hydraulic. Do I get one that is self adjusting or something else.

On the flywheel do I need a flat one or a pot style.

Would it be benificial to downsize the input shaft or stay with the 2"

I haven't really talked to anyone that knows their stuff that can give me a definite list of what all I will need so I can get started and get this thing installed.

I'd bet you will have to swap the input shaft to get the proper length and pilot diameter, unless it came out from behind another 466.
