I bought a very cheap towbar mounting electric winch from ebay, and am
trying to modify it back so that the clutch works correctly.
The clutch consists of two 4 1/4 inch steel disks with pad material
glued on, on either side of a large gear plate. The disks are keyed to
the shaft, and grip the gear plate when the plates are closed together.
I think the clutch has at some time been left engaged and one of the
pads had stuck to the gear plate. Prising it apart has not gone terribly
well, so ideally I would like to replace the clutch pad material.
Does anyone know what this is called and whether it can be bought
anywhere? It is about 1/8" thick, very slightly compressible, grey
material with a red coating on the unglued (ie active) side.
