Removal, Repair and Replacement See figure 3-59.
This procedure assumes a complete removal, repair and replacement of the assembly. A partial disassembly, repair and
replacement is possible. Follow the procedure to the point of removing only those components requiring repair or
replacement. The procedure is the same for all four of the feeder drives.
Disconnect and lock out the breakers for the feeder drive motor and the gathering conveyor motor.
Remove the jam nut from the adjustment rod.
The gate can be removed by lifting it vertically out of the hopper.
Remove the roll pin at the bottom of the adjustment rod.
Inspect the gate for wear or damage. Repair or replace as necessary.
Inspect the adjustment rod. If the threads are damaged or the rod bent, repair or replace it.
Install the adjustment rod with one jam nut into the collar and insert the roll pin.
Place the feed gate back into the slot and onto the adjustment rod.
Thread the top jam nut onto the adjustment rod.
Set the gate to the desired height by adjusting the lower jam nut to the correct height from the top of the housing
and lower the gate onto the nut. Thread the top jam nut down and tighten against the gate.
