Hesston 5600 bottom belt roller bearing replacement

Hi all, I am doing a bit of an overhaul on my hesston 5600 which has been great for me so far, the bottom belt had a big tear in it so decided to replace, once it was off I discovered the bale support roller closest to the pickup is locked up tight, this appears to be one of the rollers that doesn't just unbolt and drop out, the only way I can see to get the roller out would be to split the whole thing down the middle, but this can't possibly be right! I would nearly have to take the entire thing apart! Has anyone done this job? I feel like I must be missing something! As a side note my replacement platform belt did not come with the centered v-belt, how critical is this to keep it centered? The dealership didn't seem to think they could even get it anymore so I'm not sure what my alternative would be! Thanks in advance!

I dont think your not having the centered v belt will matter, I had a IH 2400 a few years back and its platform belt didnt need a centered v belt and there wasnt any issues with that belt tracking right.

Don't know anything about your baler, other than looking at the parts breakdown on Agco. If it is locked up, what I saw was just bearing replacement would fix?

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
