Does anyone know how to solve leaks in canola on an 8230 right above the feeder house?
That seal is a prick of a thing to change! You need arms like an orangutan ….. plus an extendable neck ….. or eyes on the ends of each finger! All three would help!I thought about changing the seal once, but it looks like quite a job and I wasn't sure how to reach the nuts on the underside. I don't think I'm losing any canola off the front of the pan, so I haven't bothered.
I wonder if this would be the same procedure for a New Holland combine? I guess I will have to take a closer look. Were you able to change them out by yourself or are two people needed?Its actually not that hard to change the grain pan seals. You can remove the whole assembly and do it outside of the combine. There's 2 bolts above the transmission that hold it in place. I removed the shoe leveling actuator so I could move the shoe from side to side. It wiggled out fairly easy. I also closed the concaves all the way. That little bit of extra room helped a lot. There are 5 or 6 seals total
