The Clutch Plate is worn and to re-set the Clutch Lever height, you need it to be unworn. Once the Clutch has been re-set then you can use the old plate if it is still serviceable.(It does say this in the Manual) But it is necessary to use a NEW plate if you are going to re-set the height of the Clutch Levers, this applies to all clutches especially the Dual Clutches fitted to some tractors. You need to check the amount of unworn friction lining that is above the top of the rivets holding it to the Disc.(How much wear is left before it touches the rivets) If the face of the lining is close to the top of the rivets it is better to replace it. If your original clutch plate is the one that was fitted when the tractor was new, then it will be to the correct specification, if your replacement Clutch Plate is non-genuine then obviously there will be a difference because it is a different manufacturer and not warranted to be correct by MF. If you get a genuine one from Massey-Ferguson it will be guaranteed to be to the correct specification. If the Plate you have removed is only worn a small amount like you say then the linings must be harder and of good quality, I wonder what the re-placement Plate will be?...John(UK)...email@example.com
