Woven brake linings

I am looking to reline the brakes on my 740 which requires semi-metallic woven linings 2" wide by 3/16" thick. After researching online, I'm considering Redco RNAW woven lining. Another option is Green Gripper, but I understand it is so tough that it will wear the drum excessively. I wonder if anyone has an opinion on these options or others.

I believe the minimum purchase at Redco is a 25' roll, of which about 16' will be required for the job. I don't yet know the cost of a roll, but have found I can get the linings bonded locally for $50/per shoe (= $600 total). If I riveted them myself instead, it would be much cheaper but there are a total 128 rivets to set. Although the method is not particularly difficult, it would be quite time consuming as that is a lot of rivets to deal with.

Any input on all this matter is most welcome.

I just got my 533 shoes done for $200 per axle. (6 shoes total)

All Friction in Connecticut did mine. I am putting them on this Friday, so we will see how they perform.

That looks like the same lining McMaster-Carr has that is semi metallic woven. It has little brass threads through the lining. You can get different thickness and widths by the foot.

Wow, I went to school in El Cajon many years ago and delivered the El Cajon Valley News as a paper boy. Had not seen that name in years. Ernie in Arizona

Thanks for the information gents. Looks like these relining places used rivets, not bonding. Did they supply the woven material as well?

Mine were Bonded. The guys cleaned and stamped each brake pad for me. D1,D2,D3 for the drivers side and P1,P2,P3 for the passenger side. I don't know if it matters, but I didn't want to find out the hard way...

Less than a two week turnaround time.
