1977 Gleaner L2: Possible Upgrades

3982 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  gmguy
All, thanks for all of your help this far. I have found a 1977 L2 that is in need of some TLC. I think I can get it for a song, but I have some questions first.

1) Can you update the cab monitors/header height to run a series 3 head (just curious if I have room to grow)

2) Can you re-route the heater & A/C hoses inside the corner column?
(probably a dumb question, but just wondering if anyone has ever tried)

3) Can you adapt the long shoe out of the late models into the older machines?

This L2 is in need of a good cleaning. With that said, the guts seem to be in good shape with little wear. All monitors work (at least all light up when the test button is pressed). It has the 301 engine with gear drive. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks l3! I think you are right. While I was waiting for a reply, I did some poking around on AGCO parts, it turns out Gleaner made a kit to do exactly what I am asking in #3

From AGCO Parts Gleaner L2 Book page 424:

1 CLEANER SHOE KIT, long, (To install long shoe on Combines prior to S/N 19501) (Incl. Chaffer and Sieve)
Note: If long cleaner shoe has been
on combines prior to S/N 19501, service
with parts shown for 19501 thru 28000.

Glad to hear it can accept these two updates! If I can get it cheap enough, I might just have to get over the ugly cab.
