Pointless if only done on one unit, you like to fund the size of program that would take for all brands?

The upgraded Agco ones are supposed to be equal to the Gibson for wear.

Yes I did go all stainless. Am unaware, as is manufacturer why that would be a problem. Certainly worked well. 1 season and those stainless rolls weren't even shiny yet let alone wore. Made a huge difference running the stripper as the old ones were quite worn. I just used the short bolts but plan on drilling all the way through and bolting them together with 3" bolts and stovers.

Sure would be nice to know just exactly which model and year build Gleaner that Massey would match. Even thought it looks as though it did very well I stroughly believe a few of tricks would of did it wonders. That would not even include tring to match the others horsepower.
