Re: Oil Contaminated Clutch ??
I have resurected brake shoes in my poorer past, and they worked OK, but depending on how hard you
are on your clutch, its full life will probably suffer. I haven't had a CF in my hands, how porous is
the friction material? Most clutch material I have seen in the last few years and been pretty dense,
and should clean up pretty fair. The bigest concern is will residual oil boil up to the surface under
Don't expect that a quick pass with brake cleaner will completly remove all the oil though. Use
clean white paper towles and lots of cleaner till the towels come off clean.
Old timers used to boil oily brake shoes to remove oil, but I'm not sure how well modern materials would
hold up to that treatment.
