I have the AFS Display in a 2004 2388. How do u set (measure ) the setting for the grain flow sensor on the top of the clean grain elevator? I understand that it should be 3/8 to 1/2 inch.

Thank You

from the tip of the top clean grain elevator paddle (TDC) to the deflector plate. If it's outside of spec, adjust the elevator head to bring it into spec. Once it's in spec, make any tension adjustments at the bottom of the elevator so that you don't change the clearance.

slip a finger in there. If your finger fits easily, the clearance is probably a little over spec. If your finger won't fit, the clearance is tight. Anything in between is probably close enough.

Or use a bolt/rod/dowel as caseihaxialflow stated.

If you're having difficulty, grab a correct size bolt and slide it in there to check the gap. Also, check that the deflector plate is not worn out - if it is, replace it.

I must be an idiot. but I still cant see how to measure this damm thing...how can u get anything in there? It also looks like on my machine its about4-5" away. Yet the yield monitor seams to be working fine. I will try to take a couple of pics of it.

Bring a paddle on the elevator chain to the very top so it is vertical. Then measure from the tip of the paddle to the top of the elevator housing. if it is too much tighten the elveator chain with the bolts on the sides of the elevator head. Make sure to give yourself slack with the adjuster on the bottom.

Linux, I think that you may be trying to measure the wrong piece. The deflector plate is a stainless plate right above the clean grain elevator chain. The impact plate is on the yield monitor sensor which is about 4-5 inches away from the paddles. Just take the grain flow sensor out of the way and look in from the front of the elevator. You should be able to see in there and measure using bolts or rod or whatever. Hope this helps Jimmy
