Ended up buying the combine we ran it before I handed over the cheque and it must have just been in my head.

I found out it has an airfoil top sieve how well do these work and how does a guy go about setting them for canola and soybeans?

I have a 8780xp went from a 8780 both good combines easy to set . I like the two speed gear box and other improvement's on the xp. But yes the caps fuel system is a true pos. I just lost the accumulate have done this four times in 4500 hours. This time put the new one on ran it about two hours the crankcase is about a gallon and a half to full of diesel. The 1500 part is bad lucky I think the engine in ok. I have a hilco leveler and running in steep hills is a added challenge it does a great job. I have cut wheat, soybeans, canola, Barley and salflower.
