Howdy all,

So a buddy and I noticed that it is difficult to find the Blue Align clutch liner for the 700N.

Is there an alternative out there? I see the black one.

What is the material of the liner?

Can we make our own?

I found some liners online but they are charging $22 bucks instead of $5 to $7.

...the main question again is,

What is the material made of...can we cut our own?

I use header gasket material from Mr. Gasket and then machine it.

As TMoore said, it is nothing more than 1 cents worth of automotive gasket material available from any auto parts store. I also bore it out to size on my toy lathe.

Ferodo clutch liner rubber is most common in rc nitro clutches. Not expensive either.

You can buy the blue gasket material from McMaster-Carr in various thicknesses.

Dam. All this time waiting for clutch liners in the mail and it was sitting right in my garage.

I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Hirobo has blue style liners. Might try buying an eagle or turbulence one.

Yep, Garlock is the stuff. Simple to cut a clean piece and epoxy or even ca it into the bell.

BJames111,

I have found that the blue/green Garlock stuff does not grab nearly as well although it lasts a lot longer. The old gray stuff from Pep Boys works best for me. You want the (rubberized) water gasket and NOT the air gasket. Never the correct thickness.
