yes i"ve been tossing this back and forth the last couple of daysabout which way to go. I agree the price is a little steep but like i said in my area this old stuff is hard to come by and if I start looking out of area I start getting into extra cost for shipping ect.
Today im leaning toward the All crop as ome pointed out the self, the gleaner i feel will cost me more money to get going but because it has more wear parts in it plus an engine that already needs work - fuel lift pump that i know of - have not seen or heard of the motor running yet. The other challange is that the guy selling is junk going to scrap the combine as he can get more for it as metal than a working machine which is sad.
The all crop is complete minus the broken reel and the owner has kept all the belts and canvase's indoors. there is minor repairs such as sheet metal and a reall good one over to check bearings ect. Plus the bonus is I know my H runs and don't have to worry about that part.
I have been loking around the net for a pictureclose up of the reel to see what material I would have to get if Iwas going to remake the reel - any one come across close up pictures of know the measurments of a reel.
I have determined that the pull type is an all crop 60 - the very common one.
Thanks for the help - keep the suggestions comming
