I don't know what it is but I sure like the looks of the 1400 series combines and always have. Seeing people still using them makes me want one just for the **** of it to run with the 2366. But I guess one combine is enough to work on.

My friends family ran 2- 715's and 2- 915's until about 2005, then they ran a 1440 and a 915. I really enjoyed helping them out in the fall. Had a 706 gas and a 1066 pulling wagons and a 1206 on the pto dryer. Farmall B running an auger and I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

Since we're having a competition on breakdowns 

Chopping corn 

Starter on chopper 

Bearing on knife drum on chopper 

Sheared bolts on a fan paddle 

Blown hydrostatic hydraulic line.

O ring issues on other hydrostatic hydraulic lines on chopper.

Soybean and planting wheat

Pulley that runs the beater/straw chopper on combine stripped the splines out of the pulley.

Bearing failure on the tensioner pulley that is on the cylinder that engages the seperator.

Broken chain and sprocket on the tailings elevator drive.

Sprocket and chain that drives the auger on the grain head.

Fan resistor that controls the fan speed inside the cab of the FWA 7120.

Combining corn.

Coupler on corn head that mates the stalk rolls the the gearbox.

Dryer electrical issues on the stand alone dryer.

Bearing failure on the shaft that drives the elepticals that drive the cleaning sieves .

The joke is of course the combine is going to start falling apart. We just got it paid off this month ?

Here are some more corn harvest pics.

The last 2 are of me sitting in line at the elevator/ethanol plant. I type this as i sit there. Line is 4 wide on a 1/8 mile long driveway. Been here almost a hour and haven't moved yet. This is going to become a very long drug out affair.

Have some more pictures of corn harvest i thought I'd share. 

The 3 pictures are of the elevator/ethanol plant we haul corn to. The last one is the stand alone dryer running at night.

Received our 250 gallon allotment of LP and next weeks as well. 500 gallons might finish up drying without needing more.  Maybe 2 more truckloads left to harvest, not sure if it will fit in the bin.  Remainder will go to town.

Took this photo tonight. Getting cold again!

The last few weeks have been bad. The mud, standing water and down rice are a bad combination. Had a slug of down wet (in the water) rice plug the rotor yesterday. It took 5 hrs... the rotor belt is worse for wear but still working. Also the clouds of black birds are taking a toll.

Here are a few pics

Here's what our fall harvest has morphed into. 8 inches of snow Monday. Also the stand alone dryer is down with parts that are made of unobtainium. Spent 2 days chasing the part pictured below with no success and ended up buying something off of Ebay that won't be here until Monday. Sitting on half a wet tank full of corn that needs to be dried. Have 24 acres of corn left to run but need to get the one dryer going as well as the snow to melt off the corn stalks.

On a side note. If anyone knows anyplace that specializes in these obsolete electrical parts or has parts for old Farm Fans dryers or knows someone that specializes in them. Let me know. It would be nice to not have to do the Ebay route and not have to wait for snail mail to deliver when I have corn to dry.

North Star Hardware and Implement(4193367361) in North Star, Ohio has always been able to keep our Farm Fan drier going. Would be a 2.5 hour drive from Toledo, not sure how far up in Michigan you are. Might be worth a call.

Do they stock old obsolete parts or have a stash of them? That's where the problem lies. Its that GSI who owns Farm Fans doesn't have this part anymore, nor does any electrical supply company or the makers for that matter. Nobody even shows a substitute for it. ( Nothing says your in trouble more than the parts guy saying "What the H--- is this" or " I didn't know GE made this ") If they do i would be more than happy to drive the 130 miles to get it. Im not that far from the Ohio border.

Thanks for your help.
