A new pressure plate(and clutch disc) is cheap insurance to keep from having to tear the thing out again. I've taken some out that I've kept as spares against the day when they might not be readily available, but haven't reused them yet. I think my last new one ran about $40-50. If you look at a new OEM one and your old one, you'll see the difference.
