3300 cylinder bar replacement

How do I know when to replace the cylinder bars in my 3300? Mine measure a little over 1/4" (around .270 with calipers). One side on all of them is a little deeper (about .030") than the other. I only saw one with a damaged tooth/rib. The reason I am inspecting them is I kept having problems with the combine cracking corn and milo last year. I made the obvious cylinder and tailings adjustments but I just wanted to check this before beginning to harvest this years crop.

New chrome bars will crack more till polished smooth. Make sure your cylinder speeds are correct and returns are low, that's what cracks grain.
