IDK if this is at all relevant to the 8010, but I had terrible radiator plugging issues on one of the JD 7720 combines I had. Like, completely slugged with dust in 5 acres bad. This puzzled me as I had another one that I never had to blow out. My dealer finally figured out that a previous owner had installed a staggered core radiator core, where the vertical tubes were staggered rather than all in a line. It also had smaller openings between the fins. Now, those things make the radiator cool better...in non dusty environments! In high dust environments it just plugs. They replaced the radiator with the correct one, and thats the last time I had to blow it out!

The whole point here was that the screen is designed to keep large crap out, while the dust that can get thru the screen *should* pull right thru the radiator. Having the staggered tubes made it 5000% more likely that the dust would bridge up and pack in the radiator.

You might take a look at your radiator and compare it to radiators on newer machines.

tswanson and Transaxial like this.

Years ago we did something similar with our 1440. The fan went thru the rad and we had it re-cored. It never cooled the same and was always plugging up. We finally replaced it with a factory rad and it was like a different machine.

the rad is factory, I thought of that myself. As far as the direction of cleaning I've tried both... Its the shits when you battle what should be a simple problem. It is weird though of how the 2 worst crops I don't have problems with.

I've been wet dreaming over Mavs for a couple years, but never have the cash to throw at it

Phantom, I've thought of the JD door, until I saw the neighbors 40 series last year during wheat harvest. Screen is stationary and the brushes rotate. That looks like an idea, but they also have way different coolers and rad. Bigger holes. Thats what my dealer told me today is the next step is set the cooler box up like a 30 or 40 series and my problem will go away. Nothing $10K wont fix right. I've always been sour at the cooling box on these CIHs, my last combine was an 06 23 that had the same dam problem. The JDs use the same idea, with the same rad and cooler stack and you never see those guys stopping to blow out rads... Of coarse they have to get out of the shed first. lol, sorry I had to

Hope you don't mind if I borrow the thread a little, since my question is also about upgrades for my 8010 :-)

I'm wondering if anybody knows what it takes/costs to add yield mapping when we have a Pro 600 monitor already? We do not have the yield or moisture sensors on the clean grain, and we do not have an YMIU. I've been lead to believe that I can hook up just GPS (which we have) and a yield sensor on CAN bus and maybe get mapping with that? Or do we have to have the moisture sensor too? The Pro 600 has an option to detect yield sensors from CAN bus or from YMIU, so I'm hoping NOT to buy one of those too.

Second question, does anyone know where I can get a 2 piece finger bearing for the 2020 header? The kind that bolts onto the finger shaft so you don't have to pull the shaft to change them.

2006 Case IH AFX8010 - Hillco 27% Leveler - 35' 2020 Flex
1985 Case IH 1470 - Hillco 45% Leveler - 25' 1010 Header
2005 Case IH Steiger STX 275

That’s really strange those AFS components aren’t on the machine. They are fitted standard from the factory.

Try a wrecking yard?

As for the split retractable finger bearings, you might have to retrofit another brand like JD or something, then cut the fingers length to suit your front. I thought they were clamp bearings already but come to think of it they are the pita one piece R clip type aren’t they?

Square box........
Round pizza.......
Triangle pieces....

Iam confused......

RC Ranch, another member on here,
SWfarmservice posted some pics of some covers for the IH radiators. Some metal eng joint knocked them up I think. Not the prettiest thing but obviously functional. Maybe worth contacting him on here for a bit more info if your interested.

Sold a lot of Redekop MAV choppers downunder. Considerably better chop and spread than the factory chopper and spinners.
The MAV send the straw and chaff out the back further and suffer less dust and chaff build up in the engine bay. CaseIH now option the Redekop MAV from factory on the 250 series, as the X-Tra Chopping option.

Stelter repair makes them. I called last year and remember them being quite expensive. He said that on some of the Caseih models it causes a derate on the engine power so people only use it on necessary crops. I'm not sure why that would be. Maybe the intake restriction is sensed by the air filter pressure sensor? Was going to make my own for the CR but never got around to it. Didn't have any fire problems with the sunflowers so maybe not necessary.
