Questions. Has the monitor been checked over professionally to know it works properly? Upon knowing the monitor works have you dropped seed through the boot to see that each row registers? Most of the time the added washer is covering up for another problem and that cover will not hold up. Clutch dogs to wear so the points of engagement are not square. Old chains do not move as they should. Do you know the chains turn free. Bearings also wear therefore do not turn free. I just changed out eight 9/16 bearing/ sprocket combos on a 12 row because I did not like the resistance I was getting with a medium 9/16 wrench trying to turn the wing shafts on a 7000 front fold twelve row. Unless you are really behind in the field it might be worth the planter going in the shop for a day or two. Better than looking at a less than perfectly seeded field during the growing season and still guess at the problem. There is always the chance you might miss something the first time around in the shop but doing something is better than where you are at now. Good luck.

It's in the shop now, that's why I asked about the clutch.

You only need to move the shaft enough to get at the assembly. Sorry. I must have been more tired than I realized when I wrote the response. Also, to test bearing and chain load I isolate a wing or side of the planter then apply the wrench. To isolate disconnect the coupler at the transmission for each side. If chains appear to be loose (but not too loose) while mounted but the side still feels stiff then I isolate bearings. On the job I did yesterday I found two very stiff bearings, one so-so and one decent so I took no chances and changed them out. It's a sucky job to figure out what is going on with a drive on a planter but hopefully you will have peace of mind once in the field. Things can be stressful enough.
