Blury eyed and didnt read it properly.....I guess i should have been clearer, i am refering too the small cylinder that starts the unloading gearbox . The shafts i am breaking is the one with the spline that goes into the vertical auger. Put a new gearbox in friaday night.
Then yesterday ,same machine , broke the chaffer rail on the left side,grrrrrrrrrrrr. I think its time to retire the ol girls ,in talks now on a different machine.. If i didnt have clovers to do i proabably wouldnt even get in a hurry to fix it.
I hope you put in a new hex shaft too. If you can hear a ticking that is likely the problem. We hammered out a rail and tore bolts on the sieve hangers because the hex shaft was badly worn.Just an update, well, when we got in there ,found both rails broken, chaffer broken, shoe broken. So whe put new bushings in, new everything else ,back runnin yesterday morning. So about 5k later. Up and goin anyway.
Ordered that checkvalve yesterday. Should help out with my problem.
