One note to all (something to consider), remember, the brake lining is porous and soaked/saturated with oil. Brake clean will take off the outer most oil, but it will not remove the saturated parts in the middle of the brake lining. Heat is the only thing that will remove ALL oil. it must be cooked out.
Also, even heat and NOT too hot. Get it hot enough for the oil to start smoking and catch fire. this process is NOT a fast one. Last set I did took me about 30 mins +/- each one. However, salvaging what is otherwise a good set of brake bands is worth the effort in my opinion. The new replacement ones just don't fit right from what I can tell.
If I ever have to replace a set, I will use the original bands, and have them professionally religned at a truck brake shop not too far from me. Some things I can do, others I am happy to have done. A man's gotta know his limitations........and I don't often feel lucky on certain things.
as always, IMHO.
