Photo IHC Burr Mill Help Needed

So I picked this up this past weekend and have a few questions. Is there supposed to be an outboard bearing at the end of pulley? It is missing the arm and mechanism that moves the pan on inside of hopper. Does anyone have a picture of what it should look like and what rides on the worm gear part on shaft? Would anybody have a copy of manual or better yet the parts I am missing? Thanks for any help.

There is supposed to be an outboard bearing, beside the pulley. Jebaroni has manuals for it. He helped me when I got mine.

The larger sizes of IHC grinders came with a 3rd (outboard) bearing and stand. You can safely run the machine without it if you are just demonstrating it at shows. Many other brands (like Letz) offered the extra bearing as an option. The worm gear drove a small spur gear with an offset crank attached to it. This crank caused an arm to "wiggle" inside the hopper in order to prevent ear corn from "bridging", or getting stuck in the hopper on its way to the bottom. Again, you can safely run the machine with out it, but if it gets plugged up in the hopper, a broomstick or tapping on the outside of the hopper should work.

I do plan to put a bearing on the end of shaft , I would like to belt it up and see what it can do. So that fork just moves in and out to keep cob corn loose. I thought it would hook to the tab on the pan in hopper or is that just for use for shell corn or small grains. Thanks for the replies.

Hey Jimbo,

Your machine has the "supplemental Hopper Bottom" with it, that was used for grinding small grains (like corn that was already shelled off of the cob). When using that extra piece, the agitator bar is not needed, which explains why yours does not have it installed.
