Anyone replace these? Have the feeder house off at the moment replacing top cylinder cover sheet. Anyway, the bottom 3 riveted short pieces are pretty much gone and the 3 longer ones aren’t far behind. I can imagine getting the short ones replaced with feeder chain in but can’t figure how you’d do the long strips. Remove feeder chain a must? I’ve got a cheap hand riveter that is quite hard to set a rivet that size with 2 hands working at your waste let alone arms stretched out in the feeder house. Is there better rivet guns out there? Used to have an air one I remember as a kid at old mans shop which worked good but it was huge and wouldn’t work in there. Any tips/advice appreciated. Thanks

We replaced those on our cx one year. It wasn’t that fun of a job with the hand riveter but I got it done. The feeder chain was pulled out but that’s about all I remember.

It can be done with the feeder chain in. Is an easier job with 2 people. We have done ours twice. Swing the trap door open on the bottom, blow it all out good so the chaff and dust isn't falling down your neck and the crack of your arse. Grind off the old rivets on the outside. The top bolts they use are kind of a pain to get out as it's just a huge flat blade slot on top. The first time we did it, we started out with the rivets from New Holland, and they are freaking hard to get to pop. Ended up just using regular rivets we had left over from doing a tarp on our grain trailer, much easier and they out lasted the set of wear strips we put in. This fall we did them again, but only had the rivets from New Holland. After I ripped off a chunk of my finger, we came up with a better plan. One guy working the rivet gun, with a small piece of 2x4 placed under the bottom handle and a piece of pipe on the top lever for extra leverage, and one guy on the outside with a 5 or 6 foot piece of 2x4 prying down on the top of the rivet gun. That kept the gun from jumping when the rivet snaps and causing this.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

I did it with just the regular rivet gun and the new Hollandís rivets. If you go to town by the aluminum rivets and save yourself half the trouble. They are cheap for a box of them.
