FD 70 draper plugs on right side

I have an early 2162, still has the 2 halves of the reel out of line. The right draper belt will plug full of chaff, straw, and dirt. I have been cutting low this year, but its only going to get lower when I start beans. I put a new belt on, have the tension set on the high side and within 2 hours I have to stop and clean out because the belt heaves up on the far right side right inside the tension roller and starts to slip. Normally have a pretty good pile on the ground. Seems to build up right behind the cutter bar. Any ideas on what I have going on?

Adjust the tracking so there is less space at the bottom of the draper. Should be credit card width between canvas and cutter bar.

You must have skid shoes on. Take them off. The skid shoe has a 30 degree angel or so that’s pushing material towards the canvas and pulling it in. And the right side might be heavy. I had 8 of these Macdon

meskie, do you mean the draper belt should be that close? Heck I can shove a screw driver between the draper and that channel it rides in..

Slip clutch, yes I have the skid shoes on, My land rolls a lot, and is very rocky so when I was trying to scoop up the barley and wheat I put them back on hoping to keep the rocks and mud out of the header

Yes it should be that close to the bottom edge.

Other than making sure the gap is tight, another good practice is to avoid backing up with the header fully down.

Removing the outmost skidplate and bracket greatly opens up the cutterbar channel at the end. Makes it much easier to clean out the roller as well if it does happen to plug, which is inevitable in very tough conditions.

That’s what I mean is to take off the outer skid shoes off. And if you have a big gap at the canvas and bar. Yes Tighten it up. If it is very muddy put the wheels down and use the header tilt that will help with picking mud. Yes dose not fallow the ground perfect but next too. Had a lot of acers of barley flat on the ground this fall. And MUD!!! Oh and cut on a angel of your seeder. That helps too

We just loosen off and pull the bottom of the canvas out of track like 8 feet use a stick with hook to clean out, but i had same issue and then adjusted clearance to a cred card, problem fixed!
