What kind of Gleaner did you get? A pair of qick tach hooks on the feeder house makes hook up and detaching a lot easier. I got a lot of seat time ...

and wrench time....on a Gleaner, be glad to help if you need it

Good luck with it

I got a K2. Those wedges have to be pushed in and turned. You have to lay under it and roll the chain around to get the connecting link out of it too. The left wedge pin is behind the chain and you have to squeeze behind the wheel to even see something that's all but impossible to get to. On the Oliver, there's a coupler that slides in a hex shaft and two latch levers that you push and lock and that's all there is to it.

When we thought we had everything unlatched on the Gleaner, the left wedge had slipped back in and was bent a little from backing up trying to get out of it. I'll get it figured out eventually, but it'll never be as simple as the Oliver, or even the old F and G where you just took the connecting link out of a chain and took two bolts out of those blocks that locked things together.

K2 is a good machine, and yes that left hand wedge can be bear for someone my size and age lol! Most I've seen, you just had to shove it in and lift it up into the slot the unlock it. The concave door tool works ok for that, but a long wooden handled hammer works better, you can get a bit more momentum to your shove and the wood doesn't slip off as easily as steel. If you keep the header fully raised, with the ram stop down, it s a bit more accessible...depending again on the drive wheel spacing.

We're heading down to get it this morning. I'll post some pictures of it on the combine forum when we get it home.
