Awesome guys, thanks! I was pretty sure on the reel, not so much on the rotor. Currently...since I HAVE to read the manual before I play with it...I am trying to get all the lights in order. Thing has more lights than those flying gizmos in Close Encounters but apparently only the tail lights and one lamp at the end of the unloading chute are operating. Really hoping these sealed beams are either A)not hooked up or B)fairly cheap, but of course they are ten feet up in the air and my knees are about thru with all these ladders.

Having fun even if it doesn't sound like it and I WILL be back.

Thanks again!

Dave I believe my 1660 had two light switches. One for the tail, auger and grain tank. The other switch turned on the head lights.

This was so you could turn off the tail when going on the road.

The switches were not side by side either. I believe one is on the console the other ahead above your head.

Thissun has a dial on the right hand console. Settings are "hazard, road, and field". Also has a rocker switch on the steering column with a light symbol. I looked this up but can't seem to recall what it does. Lastly the turn signals control on the column. I have had limited success with getting lights to work. Tailights are fine. One front and one rear work light are working. The left blinker light will come on but not flash. I figured half a chance the right was burned out and messing up the blinker but that bulb broke off in the socket before I half touched it...so jury is out on that. Anyhow...that is the lay of the land!

IIRC a blinker light staying on, not blinking, means a bulb is burned out- on most systems. re your comment about multiple ladders......I just built a catwalk ON the unloading auger on my M2 to walk from cab to engine compartment. Your auger is too high for that, right?

It's a lot too high for this cat to be walking on! Not thinking I want to go that route. I agree with you on the flashers. I need to get the bad bulb pried out of the socket and then find a new one. I think maybe the flashers might work after that.

It's been at least five years since I've owned, maintained, and operated my 1660.

I think I'm finally getting everything the way it should be!

It is a lot to learn. When I bought this thing my conventional Gleaner experience had gone back over 40 years. I didn't want to start over, but figured I had to.

Prior owner told me he couldn't get the auto reel speed to work. I have found the same, and just leave it on manual. While working on the turn signals/flashers, on the little console under the steering wheel, I discovered a yellow warning light which indicates when the auger is not in it's cradle. I thought it was funny I had missed it in the manual. So I read it through again. I still can't find it!

Goes to what I said about IH/CIH manuals from the 80's. All I have read so far have been just terrible. This one is a little better...or maybe I am getting used to the style. I dunno. Still not the easiest manual to follow...but I'm getting there.
