I tried to find this stuff (a type of epoxy, I think), but only found it in large quantities for big bucks. I finally sent the shoes to a brake shop, and they did a nice job for less money.

Look up Tuff Bond   clutch & brake facing glue. Found on a web search, I haven't tested it.

Midwest brake bonding company is a company who does facing bonding. I did shear testing of the products for a company I retired from and it was impressive. The brake material sheared before the glue let go!  Also tested Kevlar facing material. great stuff, improved stopping & starting times on large industrial clutches and brakes.

Find a local shop that relines brakes for fork lifts.

If you do it yourself you take on certain liabilities. Take them to a brake shop.

If Kanter is still around you can buy a set ready to install for a real reasonable price, or try a local NAPA store for new shoes. 

 

From Kanter: 

Stopping ability is the single most important thing when it comes to vintage cars because even though these cars have curb appeal, there is a lot of weight behind them as well. As with all of Kanter`s products, quality and safety are our number one priority. Our brake shoes are made to fit like the originals but have been engineered with modern material to ensure safer braking and many miles of uninterrupted braking enjoyment.

  • OEM Fit and Finish
  • Modern Materials for Increased Braking Power
  • Modern Materials Allow the Dissipation of Heat Faster
  • Most Shoes are Bonded Instead of Riveted for Increased Surface Area and Longevity
  • For Most Makes, Brake Shoes are New, Requiring No Core Charge

If those were mine, I would send them out to be relined by a professional.  That is the safest route.

 

Remember if you can not get it going you can not get into trouble...but.....If you can not stop it you are in trouble.!!

 

Or you can buy them from RockAuto for $22.00
