Also put in a good used bin fill tube and new auger. Total cab make over to get rid of mouse smell. New spreader shaft and a bunch of cleaning with soap. Has 30 years of gunk on it.
I knew the cylinder bars were wore bad but didn't think they were like they are. Local mechanic has said they can be flipped around once they get some wear, but not as much as these. They are original bars with 1800 sep hrs. Was embarrassed when cutting beans with it. Couldn't run but 1 to 1.5 mph.
I'm going to be putting the rotor together tomorrow. How do i need to set it up? Local mechanic said to put two reverse bars on second row and the rest be forward bars. Its mainly going to be for corn but might use for wheat and beans if the R7 has trouble.
Ok, I put two reverse bars in for wheat and oats on the discharge end of the rotor (last row). I take them out for everything else. Otherwise, I've got the two f2 concave rasps in the bottom of the seperator concave and continued the helical across the corner of the feed opening. That's it, and I've got no rotor loss. Honestly, with the f2 concave rasps I don't think I need to fool with any reverse bars.
