Default Corn Binder Rides Again!!

Just got back from the Georgia Mountain Fair and Franklin, NC show this afternoon. Went out to the shop and put the final touches and adjustments on the binder and then put it in the corn. Went through six rows and it cycled and locked out perfectly and the knotter never missed a bundle. Here's a picture of her in action behind the '27 Regular.

Hiyall,
I am looking for a bundle elevator for this same binder. Any help out there??

Mine has a nice rust patina right now but gathers and knots just fine. When I got it all the chains were on backwards, with the folded sides facing the corn, not the flat sides. Hope I was right in changing them all to the flat sides.

Most respectfully,
Mike Rock

Is yours a 2 row or 1 row? PTO driven or ground wheel driven?
What you need is a copy of IH parts catalog CB-2..ONE ROW CORN BINDERS (GROUND AND POWER DRIVES)(MODELS MANUFACTURED 1923 AND SINCE.
There are no serial # lists (I’ve never even found a serial # on mine.) However, what you can do with this parts catalog is this: While your binder is apart, look through the parts catalog for parts that were used during a certain year range. Find that part in your pile and see if the part number matches. Some parts were used the entire run, so you have to pick out specific ones. I started with the late model part #’s and saved myself a whole lot of time, since I had several parts used only in ’49 and after(wheel bearing race).
I found an original on ebay, but I bet you can find a reproduction at jensales. Also, you will need “service manual, corn harvesters, binders, ensilage cutters, ensilage harvesters,husker shredders, pickers, & shellers”
There is another good one I have around here for it, but I can’t find it and I forget what it is called.
I’ll email you and I can send you what pictures I have.
Good luck,
couple of good pics here...http://www.macknair.com/equipment2.htm

Here is a pic of how the chains should be, per the manual. I tried to get a picture of the manual page, but it just wouldn't come out.
This is looking down the gatherers from the rear.

Kevin,
Thanks for the photos. That is how mine WERE. The manual says the 'flat side towards the stalk'. I took the flat side to be the other side, which is flat. And my manual drawings are so blotchy I can't tell which side is which....

Well, it only takes an hour to change them back.

Nice looking job on yours.

Mike

Well, I screwed up. I read in my book where it said the 'flat side of the gathering chain' was to be the driving side. The 'flat' side in my mind was the side that is flat and at ninety degrees to the chain travel. Well, the illustrations on this page of McCormick corn machines shows that I was/am wrong.

Rats!!!! Now I have to take them all off and turn them 'wrong' way around, which is the 'right' way.......
