Hi There,
I have a CC106 that is in need of some brake work. Has anyone ever found an alternative to the $$ pads sold by the dealer? I often wondered why they couldn't be relined like clutch
plates.

If you can get the materials I don't think there is any reason why you couldn't reline the pads yourself. I have never done it. You could also get a used set, it's not too often that the brake pads get worn out.

my pads on my 147 are a little worn. there is still meat there but not enough for the brakes to fully close. i shimmed it out with washers, works great. those dealer item brake pads are for the "birds", 150 bucks a side? what are they thinking, thats just as bad as 250 bucks for a gas tank.

I just uploaded a .pdf to the Cub manuals thread for a brake reline on a 149. If yours are similar, you can use it. Pretty informative and cost is minimal.

The other option which many of the Cub guys do is this.

McMaster-Carr

Get yourself a length of this material and reline your old ones yourself. About the cheapest route you can go I think.

That is what is used in the .pdf I uploaded. Explains the whole process of prep, gluing, and such.

Sorry, I never looked at the upload you mentioned before I made my post. Guess my fingers got ahead of my brain.

I was thinking of using one of my old IN license plates to cut out a shim. It's flat aluminum and my bandsaw would make quick work of it.

Following the instructions in the .pdf I uploaded, you might be out around $20 or so for new brakes.
