Jiggered if I don't think the specs. are in the SM. I'd look but all my manuals are in a box somewhere as I'm building a new shop and everything's packed.

I just loaned my manual out, so it isn't here, but I think I've been here before. There may not be a thickness published- if the disc is not worn tapered or scored, and not thin enough to deflect (bend), what seems to be the most critical portion of the assembly is to check the release lever heigth on the pressure plate and adjust to spec using the recommended JD tool (or the proper dimension from the correct reference point). Doing this will assure that all the linkages and levers will work correctly with each other regardless. I have seldom replaced clutch plates on these except in the instance where they are noticeably thin, provided they seem up to the task and not brittle or chunking apart. Just set lever height, and away you go. As for the steel, provided they are not pitted badly we usually just sandblast them a bit and scrub the sand off them and reinstall them provided they are not warped. I doubt C/D series discs will be the same as this is a wet clutch machine and the 350 is dry. Different coefficients of friction. Usually doesn't hurt to blast the frictions a bit too. Good luck.
