Replaced feeder drive belt on 1440 combine, now hydraulic tighter pulley is not engaging when separator is engaged. Also, keeps blowing small hydraulic hose off for header control switch. I have no clue what to Check. Anyone that can help me.
If I remember correctly, me and dad changed this belt on a 1666. I believe that we put one of the guards on wrong and the hydraulic tightener would get hung up on the guard and not engage. Could that be possible? The chain broken on the other side of feeder house? Had that happen too
