Default Swapping a Friction Disk on a Heider Motor Cultivator

Due to a new computer, I lost my old video editing program so took the opportunity to upgrade. Tested it out putting together this video of the swapping the paper disk on a Heider Motor Cultivator.

It wouldn't have been so bad if we hadn't picked the hottest days of the year so far to work on it. Decided it was easiest to pull the radiator and hood and slide the engine forward. After we did it, we decided this was probably how they intended it to be done. No wonder so few lasted.



Driving footage is from our demonstration at the Geneseo IL AE&TA working farm show in September.

Paul,
How are you finding those frictions stand up under load? I am going to need one one of these days. I always make my own from masonite, but those look so nice.
Cheers.

To be honest, we haven't given one a good workout yet. We swapped one onto our Heider 12-20, but due to cooling issues and some other things we've yet to work it out. We will cultivate with this motor cultivator some so that will be a test, and when we get the 9-16 Heider D done, we plan to plow with it (that's the larger disc in the picture with 2 of them).

That said, I've seen a few of these used on other machines for belt pulleys and they have held up well, with the usual caveats. The company that makes them is the direct successor to Rockwood so they are as close to original as you can get. That actually can be an issue, because they have specs for most of the original Rockwood products, but as we found in the case of our 12-20, they actually had 3 different specs, and the one we went with turned out to be off a little. If you order one, I'd make sure I had relevant specs ready to go. They aren't cheap, but they are nice. We thought about going the Masonite route, but decided to go this route instead.

We put one on the 12-20 Heider a few years ago & it's been fine but haven't worked it hard.

I let one make from sort of masonite, but don't know what sort.
A frends son made it a school project.
3 of these rings are exactly the normal width.
But I don't know yet if it is working, I'm still working at this tractor...
