I think you have the original1953 flywheel on your 1957 engine.  If the 
engine came out of a car it was probably an automatic.  If flywheel has 9 
bolt holes you should get the larger clutch.  If only 6 mounting bolts to 
clutch cover (I think not) it is the smaller clutch.  there is a date code on 
flywheel, and remember your ring gear is specific to 6 or 12 volt starter, 
but 6 v starter works fine on 12 v.  the 9 bolt clutch cover was last used in

 Working on installing a new clutch in my engine. The engine in question
 is a '57 235 engine out of a car. I removed the clutch disk and noticed
 that the clutch disk is only 9 1/4" diameter, however the pressure plate
 is 10 1/8" diameter. What is the correct clutch size for this engine 9
 1/4" or 10". I had another engine and the clutch disk was 10" diameter
 this is why I wonder is 10" is better for this engine? The engine is
 going to be installed on my '53 1/2 ton truck, >>
