I was wondering if anyone reading this has the equipment to resurface the pressure plates on my cub? Thought I would ask here , b4 I box them up and send them to brian mille Ir or somone like that. I've got 2 sets I would like to have done. If your intrsted let me know, I dont have the tools to do it. Still need a driveshaft made up also, thanks

I wonder if a local shop that does engine work couldn't do that. It would save the shipping charge!

I'd try local machine shops that specialize in automotive work. That might save you some time and money.

All I do with those is put then into a metal turing lathe until you get a smooth flat surface.

Any welding shop should have a turing lathe.

If you have to take alot of metal off you might have to add a flat washer behind you pressure spring to obtain the correct pressure for the clutch.

well A while back I talked to a guy that works on tractors mostly,has a machine shop in the basement of his shop,he was telling me he didnt h ave a way of doin it, ,I'm thinkin he just did not want to mess with it,cause I've been in the basement before and he does have the equipment to do just about anything he wants. there kinda strange,As far as having them shipped, I really dont mind paying,I could fit them in a flat rate box.
