If you open the thresher door you can see what type cylinder it has.

You see, therein lies the problem. While I could, with a little trial and error and some logical reasoning, eventually find the thresher door. Once I opened it I would not know one cylinder from another. 24 hours ago I did not know there was more than one type of cylinder...or buckets vs paddles for that matter. Seems like I would be better off looking at the combines that have corn heads on them to start with. At least then the percentages are in my favor that it MIGHT actually have the correct innards to efficiently clean and move corn.

For looking at future Gleaners . . . the thresher door is under the feeder house between the hydraulic cylinders. You will see a big latch with a spring that holds it shut. The tool that hangs in the bracket by the unloading auger serves as the lever to operate that latch when needed. The thresher door is designed so if a rock enters the cylinder, the door latch pops open, the door drops, and the rock falls out. You will, however, be notified by the cab alarm that the thresher door is open, and must stop, crawl under lifted header (after setting the safety stops) and close the door. When that door is open, you can see the cylinder. The regular cylinder will have serrated bars on it. The door will have concave bars, which could be either c-channel or more aggressive serrated bars. The spring-tooth cylinder will have what appears to be a version of hay rake teeth on it. I can't remember what the concave side looks like off the top of my head.

Ahhh...that's that rock door everyone was telling me about last winter. Something about be careful where you are when you open it...something about the design and hitting you in an unmentionable area. Yes, been told to have a careful glance in there. Appreciate the information. I keep it all on file so I have a reference when I go looking. Don't always remember to read it before I post questions though. Bad habit.

I will add this to the file...thanks!
