Dimensions of Clutch Push Rod ?

Anyone have a vernier caliper and a clutch push rod laying around ?
Need a measurement for the smallest end diameter and length.
Next larger diameter would be great too, but working on 17mm
I'm assuming the clutch friction plate splines I.D. would be this 17mm
Next would be 30mm but just to hold this tool with some knurl to help grip.
Thanks to Ernie, John and others for earlier posts with drawings and dimensions.
I have done the clutch successfully using a socket with the push rod.
Have the opportunity to get some things turned up and thought I would start with the clutch center tool.

Would like to end up with a one piece tool ( i.e. photo 1 ) not using the push rod.

Many thanks

I'm curious as to why you would want a "one piece tool" when you have the push-rod there in hand. The one piece tool that BMW sells (if you can find them) is prone to bending the end if dropped. The push-rod, if dropped, is not likely to be damaged.

Hi Ernie,
Have the chance to get some drifts and tools turned up locally and thought I would try getting this tool made first. Just to test out his expertise.
Point taken about possible damage, but I look after my shop stuff.
V blocks and a dial gauge would take care of a whoops moment.
Thought i get the flat along the edge milled to avoid rolling.
I like good quality tools.

Cheers

Bump. ⊼ ⊼
Sorry for the bump, but off to see this guy tomorrow.
Sooner than expected.

Still looking for the small end ( diameter and length ) of clutch push rod.

Thanks
