Certainly no big agco fan but when it comes to the feeder especially the upper, stick with oem parts. A lot of stress there and failure is not a good thing. Can't imagine a split sprocket on the 2" shaft would be a good idea not to mention the clumsy bolts that could snag material. Also split shields probably wouldn't work on split sprockets. New Fafnir bearings also a good idea as well as new compression springs on the adjusters. Don't forget new stamped flanges for bearings especially the ones in the feed drums as they stretch, get loose and bearings can spin in them. Agco flanges are thicker material than standard flanges and makes a real difference. Red loctite on new sprockets as well. Check shaft of gearbox as well for wear as a new hub on a worn shaft won't give you the best results. Good luck
