7120 Mustard Setting Help Needed

New to Mustard with this machine with a 40ft FD75

Clearance 28
R Speed 280
Fan 800-850
Top Sieve 12-15
Bottom Sieve 1 to 4

Clean sample
500 to 1300 pound yield which is 15 pct low

Top sieve keeps plugging.....looking for any input on settings and concave sizes

Thanks

You need slots in the separating area

Slip clutch is online now

I run a 8230 with a 40ft header, but for winter canola my settings are

Concave:27
Rotor Speed: 680
Top sieve: 18
Bottom sieve: 12
Fan: 550-600
Spreader: 350

I don't grow any mustard, but I assume the settings should be in the ballpark. If you have a really clean sample you're probably blowing a ton out the back. Do you have the cover plates on your concaves? Those can help keep all that excess material off your cleaning area. Hopefully this helps.

We used to run a 7120 in mustard. Had the pre sieve all the way closed, bottom sieve all the way closed, rotor at 300, cant remember the fan settings. I think between 750-850 (leaning towards 850), and the concave around 4. Was always pretty good at keeping it in the machine. Used small wire in the front two modules, and large wire on #3 and # 4, although this year we switched to slotted hole on the rear two, to keep the tailings down.
