I have a 2166 that has almost new small wire in now, i picked them up for $300. Worked perfect in wheat. I have 600 acres of soybeans to start on in the next few weeks. the big wire show a ton of wear and have several bent wire supports. Will the small wire work for soybeans?

I would suggest changing the rear to the best large wire you have.. No experience with soybeans, but they would hardly fit through those small wires, u would likely have high rotor loss?

No experience in soybeans either - but did peas for the first time this year with a 1440. On the small wire concave we pulled wires - we pulled the first one by the bar and then every second. You will end up with an 1/8" or more clearance than the large wire. The peas would not pass through the concave without doing this. A newer concave should be easier to work with than what ours was. Its time consuming so if you need to switch from small to large to small often then it would be better to get another set of large wire.
