A divider, is provided for attaching to the right hand shoe and is particularly recommended when sickle bar is mounted in the end position. The divider can be, bent to. different positions as desired. To attach the divider, remove the cap screw from the right hand shoe and place end of divider in upper hole at tip of, shoe.

ALIGNMENT, OF LEDGER PLATE SURFACES hempve the knife assembly. Check all guards for alignment of ledger plate surfaces. This alignment may be checked. by using astraigbt edge or drawing a stfing tightly across these surfaces. Any one guard being too high Will create . excess clearance between the ledger plates’ of adjoining guards and thepknife sections. Misalignment can be corrected by. bending guards up or down, as required. Hammer ohiy, off solid portion of the guard–beyond the lip. WEAR PLATE ADJUSTMENT The wed plates support the back of the knife gec- tionsü and, guide the knife bar in the guard recess. Wear) plates have elongated holes fore adjus!ment agai%st the knife, bar to. prevent it from drifting forwå$d and backward. Adjust by, loosening the guard sliding the. wear plates -forward against the -ßife bar.

MAINTENANCE The. sickle, bar housing is equipped with sealed bear— ings. which are packed with grease when the sickle bar Qis • assembled at the plant. Lubricate the grease fitting on the idler pulley regularly. Oil sickle bar knife assembly under the hold down clips. approximately every eight hours of operation.

The suggested method is to remove. the Imife assembly. Reinsert Che knife and adjust each clip as is reached, for the entire . length of the- bar. Bend each clip up or down asa*equired.e The approximate clearance to. be maintained should not exceed •1/32 -inch. Fitting these clips tightly will cause binding or scoring. Lubricate freely. PROPER BELT TENSION Proper belt tenSi6n is € of primary •importance. A loose ‘belt will cause slippage and reduce the sickle speed, increasing the possibility of fouling the knife. Adjust belt ‘tension at take-up points in the engaging lever and linkage assembly. Worn belts should be fePleeed. Foå•m 550461 WESTERN AUTO SUPPLY COMPANY KENCO
