If you just want a clean clock signal from a UART, set up to transmit 8N1 and send a continuous string of ASCII 'U' (0x55). Assuming your application can keep the shift register full, you'll get a nice clean square wave whose frequency is 1/2 the baud rate (stop bit is 1, start bit is 0, and the data is transmitted LSB to MSB).
