Last season we removed the rotor on a 9750 for a service and a full rotor cage rebuild. Since it has been reinstalled we are now having problems with rice straw wrapping around the rear of the rotor causing the rear wall b/w the rotor and gearbox to get hot. It is only happening with rice straw. Not sure if there is a measured clearance between rear of rotor and wall and if there was how would that be adjusted from the front. Thanks

Unless one of the rear separator tynes has some sort of "hook" on them to catch rice straw, I'd check the rear discharge beater to see if anything is worn out there & check the distance between the rear discharge beater floor & the beater itself. If there's too much gap there, the beater won't pull the material away from the rear of the rotor.
Also, check that beater drive belt. If it's slipping ...... it'll cause you grief. There's an after-market kit to speed that rear beater up. Think Craig knows about the speed up kits.

Had this happen in peas on a 9750, as in hot enough for a field fire, there is a kit to prevent it.
Also told not to run under 300 rpm rotor speed but doubt that affects you in rice.

PF parts speed up kit

Make sure rotor tynes are in good nick

Discharge Beater lugs are in good shape. I assume it has the rice lugs and not cereal bars on the beater??
