belive it or not, but the clutch liner material often used is actually a type of gasket material... usually a fiber or paper mixed with rubber type.

McMaster Carr even has an assortment pack you can try, then you can get different effects like grabby hard gripping for performance or smooth scale applications..
showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I’ve used Garlock 3000 gasket material to custom make clutch liners for years .... they come out oversized which is what the doctor ordered..... turning it down to size on a lathe and it comes out to a perfect fit ......

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

What thickness are you starting out with? I have thought about trying some 3/32"

I always measured the ID of the clutch bell once the liner was glued in place to determine how much material to machine away for proper clearance....

I’ll have to find where I stored my remaining stock to give you a thickness of what I have ....

3/32 is probably
close to what I have....

Plus one to what Juan said, I've also been doing that for years (even when the heli manufacturers were still in business) and you get a perfect clutch fit every time.
The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Garlock. I have both the 1/16 and 1/8". The 1/8" is too thick and doesn't bend well enough. You have to sand it thinner for it to work well. 1/16" might be too thin but you can use 2 layers.

Please share if you do. I've only seen Garlock in prices in I can live with in 1/16" and 1/8".

If the truth is told, I don't find it inconvenient to machine off 1/2 an old liner and glue the new one over it. Also, as tough as Garlock seems to be as a clutch liner, it is pretty easy to cut and sand before it's installed. It's not too big a job to thin the 1/8" stuff so it'll conform to the clutch bell.

Lastly, there are a ton of other materials out there I'd like to try - some of them in 3/32. Problem is, once I get a clutch glued up and just right, I'll be damned if I'm going to cut it out to try a new material. https://www.amazon.com/Equalseal-Ar...=3%2F32+garlock

We used to machine out the brand new liner so that we could install the garlock material and get the proper clearance to start.....Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....
