Hi,
I am no expert but looking at the parts book for the 1955 88, the clutch is a single chainwheel.
Do you have the parts book ?

Pressure plate looks like late AMC. Drum is certainly not heavyweight Norton. Could if be from an AMC range lightweight ?

Looks like someone is having a clear out.  I wouldn't  buy any of those bits, they are wrong for your bike anyway.

I know where there is a clutch in West Yorkshire, complete for your machine. (Original spec) £90.

That clutch with the dual sprocket is for a light weight twin or a Jubilee, Navigator and an Electra. You can use the later 1960's 650ss, or Atlas clutch with the later better type clutch plates. The shock absorber inner cover plate was changed from a counter sunk screw to an Allan screw one. The chain wheel is a single row chain, and I am sure RGM  will do all the parts you need and also a complete clutch. The parts book shows the clutch in its component form along with all the part numbers that are required. That clutch or both types the early and the later one is also show in its laid out component form in the 1957 to 1964 AJS & Matchless workshop manual. There is also the 1964 Norton twins parts book that will show the clutch in its component form along with all the relative part numbers.
