  1. DMC stirators

    I have a DMC two auger stirator in my 24 ft bin . I have about 2000 bu of corn in the bin. The inside auger has quit turning . I can't get to it because I can't get a ladder in the door( too much corn). should I continue to fill so I can reach it by standing on the corn? Also any advise about these darn stirators would be helpful . Thanks. C.J.L.
  2. 6600 jd combine

    I run a 6600 JD combine . I have a problem with small cobs in the grain. about the same size as the corn kernals. I 'm running the short tooth sieve. I have been told by some toget a long tooth which is what the Deere manual calls for. Also got totally different advice from and older JD mechanic at the dealership he said open the sieve as far as can or take out the sieve. Cyl.spd at 550 to 600 rpm cocave at 12to 14 full fan spd. corn at 19 to 22 points. I try to get a clean grain sample. A matter of pride I guess Thanks. C.J.L.

  10. 1086 tie rods

    I'm trying to replace the tie rods on my 1086 . I have the outer two off . Iwanted to replace just those but the tube orsleeve that connects the inner and outer tie rods is rusted tight. The inner tie rods rubber gasket on right side is tore. I was able to get the castle nuts off the inner tie rods. But they won't come out with my crows foot tool . If I could hit the inners I think they would come out any suggestions / Thanks C.J.L.
