T98a Input Bearing Retainer Question

I'm rebuilding my T98a and was doing the final buttoning up when the input bearing retainer cracked all to pieces.

Now I can't find a new one for the T98 anywhere.

Would the input bearing retainer for a T18 be the same part? It appears the case is the same but not sure if the bearing retainer is a direct swap.

Thanks in advance!

It is possible an early T18 would work, they say they used the same case and top cover:
