Bought a 1980 L2 with 315 head last week and am going through it. It is rougher than I had hoped, but I think I got a good enough deal that I can fix it up and get a few years out of it. The amount of rat droppings behind the tattletales is concerning, but I managed to get that cleaned up and get working units out of my parts M2s.

It came with a sieve with poly slats. Online search brings up Gateway brand and I think that's what I have. Anyone else have them?

On a side note, I'm thinking about parting out my high hour 1981 M2 if someone needs parts.

Oh yeah, Pictures. Didn't take a pic of the sieve, but here's the combine.

RockyRidge,

Congrats- looks to be a nice one. Bought a 1980 L2 last year. It was mated to a JD 643 corn head that the drive needed some
work. Haven't used it much yet, but am happy with it.

Have a great harvest.

The mice love the upper console on Gleaners.

Remove the air filter, remove a few tattletales, and swing down the lower panel to discourage nesting.

As far as the chaffer, never ran the poly one, but it looks promising.

I see a matched pair of Firestones, so I think you did fine. Smile

I'm really happy with the big engine so far. The little engine in the M2 is really cold blooded. It'll crank for a half a minute on a 50 degree day. Colder, and it needs a sniff of starting fluid. This one only has one small car battery and it'll fire on the third revolution. I'm gonna put real batteries on it soon, but there is no need while i'm only running it while getting it ready.

Pressure washed it today.Surprised there was no fire for all the chaff and oil under and around the engine. Ended up with several inches of "stuff" under the combine when done.

Had to replace the battery connector this year, it would click but not start. Replaced the lead one in the middle with a cast copper connector and now roars to life as soon as the key is
turned. The batteries drain in about a month, so I place the maintainer on it during harvest. Harvest doesn't take that long, but prep time takes awhile with a hour here and there.

The engine compartment had about 4" of oil and fuel soaked stuff on this one too. Thought it must be leaking, but stayed clean since it was scrapped out.

If you get a chance to take a picture of the poly sieve, it would be great to see.
