    2388 transition cone

    Thanks superih, I'll check that out! Here's a couple pics of the thin spot that I can see, it has 2755 rotor hrs on it

    2388 transition cone

    I dont think any vane bolts are gone, but there were 3 or 4 missing before 18 harvest where cone bolts on in front of concaves. Might still be one gone that we couldn't reach. I'd like to upgrade in a year or two, but dont want trouble at harvest time. Sloan Express has 10% off parts till end of the week too. How do I pull rotor out? I have a skid steer w pallet forks. The lower clean grain auger pan developed a hole on the right side near the elevator opening too. Do I need to pull sieves to replace that? It has around 2900 separator hours on it. I put in new rasp and separator bars and clean grain elevator housing and upper shaft/bearings along with lower clean grain cross auger and both elevator chains/ drive chains when it had 2100 sep hours on it.

    Tires- Firestone, Harvestking

    That's what I thought also, I put a set on my 7120 a couple years ago after the Michelins did the same sidewall cracking with nearly all the tread left.

    2388 transition cone

    When I got this 2388 in fall 2013, they said transition come was thin as paper, but have used it for 5 seasons and got by, but it is sharp where it meets concaves. Looking at aftermarket ones, they list 3/16" or 1/4" wall, do they bolt in the same or is this serial # specific? Also my auger bed wore thru when an auger broke, I patched it underneath, but lip is cracked loose on the right side, so I am considering replacing that when the rotor is out. Is that easiest way to replace? Thanks

    Tires- Firestone, Harvestking

    My 5288 has Armstrong 20.8x38 radials, one has developed a sidewall crack and went flat, guessing it pinched the tube. So looking at new radials, Firestone at 1350 each and harvestking at 1000 each. Anyone have any experience with the cheaper radials? Mostly pulls a v rake for a couple weeks during summer, silage cutter for a week in September, a bale processor to feed cows for a few winter months. Only hard pulling it does is an 18' Salford @ 8 to 10mph some springs, only if we are wet. Bias would be cheaper but I like the way the tractor rides and pulls with radials. Any opinions?

    Barn pictures

    No existing structure here, my carpenter neighbors built the structure and we did doors, insulation, interior steel, wiring and a 12' square office in corner. This is our lambing barn, run a little over 300 ewes. Main barn built in 08, we added 24' lean on north end last year. 60x100 with 24x100 addition. My wife really enjoys it when it's cold in january/February, she loves her babies!

    7120 no tach or gear indicator

    Sorry, the transducer that gives the tach a signal is pointing up on the hydraulic pump drive housing, which is located under the cab's right side. I think there is a resistance # in ohms for checking it but I dont know what it is. I have 2 7120 tractors and was going to swap the sensors, but there is a big hydraulic hose/pipe that is in the way to get sensor turned all the way out. Later on while replacing a hose under cab I found chewed wire that was the problem.

    Thanks, that's what I was wondering!

    7120 no tach or gear indicator

    I ended up pulling the floor mat and floor to replace a hydraulic hose and found a broken wire in right front corner. I found a small mouse nest behind right hand console below hyd levers. Patched wire and got rid of mice and no problem since. I can tell you that a big hyd hose needs to come off to give enough clearance to screw tach transducer out

    856 overcharging battery

    No, the voltage regulator is below the dash in front of your feet, this has an original style alternator

    856 overcharging battery

    Sorry, typo. Should have read oem style alternator, has a large stud and one small stud on back of alt and one plastic plug with 2 wires that plugs into the back of the alternator. The system has an external voltage regulator as well

    This is one style alt, not a 3 wire gm style like 66/86 series use

    856 overcharging battery

    No, he got nervous and shut it down right away. Battery is new, but could be a pinch low, fires right up. I know he has one wire in the alt plug switched and battery voltage at stud at rear of alt and grounded small stud on alt. Should there be power at other plug terminal at all times?
