Roto-Spader - Make my own clutch lining?

I also have a Roto-Spader Model #785-50751 that needs a clutch lining. I checked with Sears and my local small motor repair shop. Both say the lining is nowhere to be had.

If you know of a source, could you post it here?

I am thinking about creating my own clutch lining. I figure if I cut clutch material from an old auto clutch or brake lining I could tile the pieces in place and set them with epoxy. Any thoughts on that? I guess I have little to lose if the part can't be purchased.

If you have a shop in your area that relines brake shoes may be able to help you. I had a clutch disc relined at a brake shop and it looked new and it worked fine in that old Farmall tractor. Hal

If I may make a suggestion?
You need an old timer parts man"s parts man. What I"m trying to get at go to the old-timer who"s got the patience to help you with your needs. The same man who appreciates your doing business with him when your needs are simpler, And likes the occasional challenge. The same guy who knows what you need most the time without having to ever look it up and is always right. Ive was given a decrepit Cushman truckster what really deserved a decent burial in a blast furnace. A neighbor wanted to check out the OMC engine before giving it last rights. It ran beautifully, thus it was repaired and fully reassembled (reconfigured) from front to back. Most importantly it uses a new 1937 Buick throw-out bearing for the fully functioning new Allis-Chalmers C clutch plate (disc). What Im trying to say whatever part you need, may have been used somewhere else in another machine in another time. Just try to find the right place to get the help needed to look. Meanwhile, stay tuned, others following me may most likely have some better ideas.

I understand exactly what you mean, but at this point I don"t know any of those resource people. I am one of those ol" timers who fix and repair, use and reuse, instead of toss, junk or buy new.

Thanks for the encouragement and I will stay tuned. It may be someone can help me through this discussion forum.

Thanks Dave,
Unfortunately, I am about as far away from NY as possible. Home is Dundee, Oregon. :)
