I was talking to a local collector about my clutch discs, and he suggested The Brake Shop in Wichita. Went there yesterday, they couldn't cut a pair for me but this was a small buisness that would at least TRY to find someone to make them and wanted to do buisness with me. It reminded me of my shop, anybody that prefers very clean, organized and modern shops would be greatly dissapointed. I LOVED it, was like walking through a time portal.
Anyway, we shall see what they come up with, they called and said 3 days or so and i can pick em up.
Here is the only review i found for the brake shop, and it mirrors my thoughts pretty close.;
A car-smart friend recommended The Brake Shop for some brake work. The shop has an old-school feel, like the repair shops of my youth in the mid-60s. Shop cat, people smoking, inventory stacked everywhere, stuff like that. They did rear drums on my car for $120, did it quickly and the work appears good. The mechanic also correctly diagnosed and fixed a front suspension issue that has eluded other mechanics. So overall I was pleased by their service. I would much rather come to a local place like this than get needlessly upsold at some chain store.

Russ, when I was restoring the Baker 22-40 I went to my local clutch repair shop to find new disks. He w s s apprehensive at first about selling just the disks. The ones I got had the right id nbut he couldn't match od. I used my circle cutter for my bandsaw making up a center to hold the disks then cut the od of the disks, worked great. Save time and money, just used a metal cutting blade. Jim

Got the clutch discs in last week, assembled the clutch and got it installed. These sure are simple to work on, except for the retainer ring at the front, man that was tough getting that installed without bending it.
Got the oil pan on, had plenty of help with that little project.

I was removing old grease and dirt from the bell housing saturday afternoon when a friend called and halted progress for the rest of the day. It was time to pick corn with his Massey, first try since a LONG time ago. Anyway, did most of the work on the twin city sunday, sacrifices have to be made, you know.

Managed to get the engine back in the frame saturday, but not yet lined up with the clutch. I'm hoping to get lined up and complete oil system then belt up for a while before winter so it can be basically broke in on the rings enough to be able to crank it over, right now the hone and new rings make it pretty stiff.

Russ,
In post 93 you show and mention clutch retainer ring.
Over the years I have seen several of these rings pushed off the groove sending the clutch forward into flywheel. I assume this is from kicking the clutch in very fast with one swift stomp of the foot. I always tell folks to bring foot pedal in slowly and as tractor begins to move nudge the properly set pedal over center for complete engagement.
In past projects, I have set engine in place, measured distance from ring to flywheel and cut an "oil-lite" type self lubing bushing to fill this space. That way the ring can not be sent forward by over stressing the assembly.
They work fine when cared for, this is just an extra insurance idea.
Thanks for posting a fun and informative thread for all of us to enjoy!
Tony

Thanks Tony, i was going to ask some advice on this anyway as i'm not real comfortable about that ring, seems like you have to really stretch it to get it on and then its hard to shape it back into the groove tightly.
I will probably do like you suggested unless i read different. I was actually thinking about clamping it and tack welding the end as it has new discs and may never come apart again, if it had to a torch would remove it.

Folks that know me can tell you i'm the most organized unorganized mechanic in my family. For many years i restored/repaired tractors in my dirt floor shop on the farm, anytime we painted one i took it to the paint booth at work. Not long ago i moved a one car garage to the farm and made a concrete floor shop out of it. Started to sheetrock the walls and insulate, but.......never got that part done before a tractor made its way in for repairs, then another and another. Cans of bolts and boxes of parts, tripping over cylinder heads and toolboxes, dissasembled engine and tractor parts in different areas, sometimes different buildings.
Two days ago i bought a small workbench from the boss, too small for the shop but just right for me. Wasn't long before i had it full of 17-28 parts. It is a "EQUIPTO" bench, fits right in with my elite operation.

A thought came to me about the snapring on the input shaft, when i put it back on it was out of round and somewhat barely in the groove. Since we work on semi truck and trailer brakes we have 1 1/2" snap rings around, i wondered about installing three thin ones in place of the factory ring but found a thicker one also, ended up that one thick ring and one thin ring fit the groove just right. They installed very easily.
