Have wheat laying all over the ledges (flat areas) on both sides of the machine. What is the fix? It looks like the seal strips are tight against the sides on the inside.

How can it take over 10 days now and counting to get a sunnybrook sweep kit for my S 68?

hoff,

I have a r65 doing the exact same thing. If you find out the fix please post it here. I just had mine in the shop and all new seals on shoe and it still leaks. Look like it come out the front corners by fan on mine.

Im assuming you have climbed on top of the sieves to make sure its sealing? I once had a flap get out of place in a corner and caused the side of the machine to have wheat sittin on ledges.

Same thing happening to my R65 although worse in ryegrass and clover, replaced side seals on fan deducting (need to remove shoe to do this) and silicone around fan deduct and frame, even screwed draft stopper door brushes to top of wooded shoe seals, helped a bit. All other seals appear ok. Possible grain is being flicked up by thicker flighing section on clean grain elevator and catching air flow. Is there a solution as looked at it many times?

Could it be that the clean grain sieve is closed too much causing it to just work like a shaker screen and it's over burdened with kernels.

If so, setting it requires a different approach by not only opening the lower sieve significantly, but also closing the top one a fair bit to stop the majority of the airflow that can't get through the bottom sieve from simply taking the path of least resistance between the two of them and out through the top one.

I know it sounds stupid, but check and make sure your rotor door ears are latched correctly. When they redesigned the latch on the supers it is easy for it to get one side latched and not the other without noticing, have seen it happen on a 77 leaving wheat laying on the def tank.
