That is not why this thread was started. The question was asked if it was ok to try to remove the oil from them If there is no other choice....as in SHTF.
I do see the process being talked about. I responded to joels post about clutch linings being salvaged. And I posted about time involved and labor used as an economic perspective. Brakes are easier to access than replacing a clutch assembly. And seen that posters were doing well at covering the initial inquiry.
And I take the brake conversation as can you "salvage" contaminated linings. Yes you can, and save used shoes for another day when maybe one goes bad and you can substitute a salvaged shoe instead of being without transportation.
If I have a choice with a system that I Depend on performing every time when needed, to stop loaded or unloaded, I prefer to use unquestionable performing parts that have safety and dependability built into the parts, system.
Without doubt if there is safe and effective way to recover use of a critical braking item then all is well. 1 out of 6 braking positions at 50% effectiveness is ok? 2 for 6, 3,4, when is the braking point?
