Has anyone else experienced what you considered excessive lint collecting on your oil filter or in you drain oil after installing new kevlar bands? We've had a couple incidents where lint continued to mat on the screen for several hundred miles through several oil changes and in one recent rebuild, there was suspicion that it partially blocked the outside oil line. There are apparently two manufacturers of these bands and we haven't kept track of which sources we are using that might be a factor.
Do you have rough or cracked drums?
Yes, check your drums. I had lots of lint because a bad reverse drum was chewing up the Kevlar.
I've also experienced fraying Kevlar on my brake band where it meets the driven plate.
I use a transmission inspection plate filter and the lint was enough to make the oil pool up in the filter area. It made a real mess when I removed the inspection plate.
I didn't have a problem, no fuzz!
Your low speed drum looks bad. You may have a cracked drum and not know it, like I had recently. Bottom line is you shouldn't have that much lint. Check the drums.
I'm fairly confident it's coming from the edge of the outermost band, as you can see in the picture. Not the low drum.
I agree low looks scored in the picture but it's actually in decent (not new) shape.
Drums with sharp edges will cause Kevlar Bands to produce excessive lint.
Don, I had the same problem with a 1924 touring I had. The drums were near perfect with no scoring and no cracks. In addition to the lint, I could not get a decent brake effect. I lived with it. I never noticed any wear and drove the car about 5k miles over about 6 years.
