Needing help

I have a 92 carpenter bus already converted over to a camper. Had the international 7.3 and Allison 545. Engine died, I had someone put a 93 7.3 engine in from a pickup truck . Flex plate snapped into small pieces . Now international says they don't make the flex plate anymore. Help????? Is there an aftermarket

talked to a buddy of mine.. he doesnt have a flex plate.. a truck junkyard or perhaps online from the likes of heavy truck parts and find a used one.. make sure the flywheel housing didnt come loose from the motor that will shatter a flexplate in a heartbeat...
