As far as I know the 542 became the 5542. And I thought the last digits were the cylinder width. So the 545 would be 3" wider than the 5542, and a series older?

I always thought a 545 was a corn/bean combine. Where as the 5542 was the wheatland model. Didn't a 545 have the grain tank up top?

Had a 545 Cockshutt and an Oliver. Was told the 5542 had a wider or lighter cylinder, (don't remember exactly but), that it (? shaft) would bend doing corn. Neighbour is still doing 50ac/year with the Cockshutt.
