If you can't find one you can make one out of a wooden dowel or use a socket with the right outside diameter.

If not too heavy, Trans can be held up and snug bolts.

If you have access to a wood lathe you could turn one out of wood sized to the pilot bushing / bearing and clutch hub centre - just a suggestion if you can't find one.

I have a kit I purchased years ago from an auto parts store.  Don't they still have them?

 

For that matter, many of the big chain auto parts stores have "loan-a-tool" programs.  You might be able to get one that way.

 

Of course if you have a spare transmission input shaft on hand you can just use that.

Put a jack under it.  Done that several times with a full size auto.

Take a big allen wrench that fits or almost fits the pilot hole. Find a socket that fits the clutch plate. Slide the allen wrench inside the socket. Duct tape wrapped around both to adjust the size to a snug fit. Easy-pessy, Good to go. Did this once on a buddy's car. Worked like a charm.

Advance Auto, NAPA, Autozone. Or cut a piece of broom handle. I wouldn't do the duct tape thing, because I would not want to unwrap it after I was finished.
