A question on clutches (1755 vs 1655)

rrlund stated in another thread that the clutch (pressure plate) on a (at least) the 1655 should be set and adjusted to the disc that it's used with if I understand correctly. [color=brown]"Make sure that pressure plate is set correctly for the thickness of the clutch!"[/color]

J. Schwiebert suggested strongly that a 1750 pressure plate be used.
My curiosity got to me since I replaced the clutch in my 1755 about 15 years ago and have had no problems with it.
I had no special setup procedures that I knew about. Is this because I bought a kit and didn't buy the individual pieces?
Which raised the question for me - Are the 1655 and 1755 clutch the same? and what is the benefit of using a 1750 pressure plate? Is it different somehow?
I forget where I bought my clutch kit (Hy-Capacity?) but I got the six puck ceramic style and changed the pressure plate to the heavy duty diaphragm version. Cleaned up the flywheel and replaced everything that could be replaced in the vicinity (pilot, carrier, release etc.) with new parts and it was a slap together and run it type install. And it's still working good. It's not used as often as it was when I had to change it, but it's still used at least 4 hours a week these days.
Just wondering...

Scooter is correct. The man was converting his 283 to a 310 which has a little more torque. The early 1750 tractors with the button clutch would slip in some conditions so Oliver improved the torque capacity of that pressure plate. It has been 44 years since I have done this and I would need tolook up the specific spring combination. When Oliver suggested that dealers could rebuild pressure plates we were of the dealers that did.

I didn't think they were the same.
I thought J. responded that way because that member is converting his 1655 to a 310.
