Sometime "before long" I'm going to have to replace the clutch facings in my 70. As you know, the price of the ones bonded to the two metal pieces is a bit "salty". I've noticed that the facings themselves are the same as the free facings. Is it possible to take the worn out metal ones to a brake shop, have the remains of the facings removed and new ones bonded on? If so, would the cost really be cheaper than "new" ones? Thanks and a happy Thanksgiving to you all!!

I had a bonded disk separate on me on a tractor I needed that day. The only thing I had that I thought might remotely work was weatherstrip glue. I knew it probably wouldn't last long but I needed the tractor until I could make other arrangements. That tractor is still working. I recently had to take the clutch apart for some service work and the disks were still bonded to the steel. I wasn't sure if the glue would stand the heat but it appears to have done well. I wire brushed the steel clean and bright, brushed the facing and cleaned it with brake cleaner. I didn't expect it to work but it seems to have done just that. Hope this helps. Mike

I have done several of them using gorilla glue and they seemed to hold just fine,do as Mike said and clean them up good. I put it the vice then a couple more clamps around it and left overnite worked good. But you should be able to buy them for around $40-45 dollars and that doesnt seem bad considering you do it yourself with no labor charges
