If your car that has a manual transmission has an engine in it that had a flexplate instead of a flywheel, then the clutch is never going to work right. You need a flywheel for the clutch to grab.
I hope that you were actually told that your Friction plate was wore out, and not the flexplate.
Did the transmission shift and operate correctly before the engine went in it? if you bolted a perfectly good tranny to an engine with a flexplate, and then it started having issues, then im going to blame the flexplate.
If you have a clutch so worn out that it wont grab at all, then replace the clutch.
