I vote for the A and C Gleaner, They used 4 diffarant bearging's thru out the entire combine,and a 9/16 and 3/4 wrench to adjust the belts and chains. The only thing that was chessy on them, was that Raddle chain, the sooner you threw the Allis chain away, and got one from that place in Manchester Kansas,the better off you were.

i had a Gleaner F ,. I cant agree with that myth totally,,. Bottomline , I Like setting up a combine and enjoy making repairs a week before the crop is ready ,,. I HATE fixing one pesky thing after another , or the same dum thing over and over again on the durn combines when i should a been done 2 monthes ago . gleaner has a lot of pulleys and wheels ,chains and gizmos that dont do much more than complicate the worx,. kinda like a new idea piker ,,.i have run masseys, too long and understand the method to their madness ,.. one thing for sure ,,. there is alot of room to get to stuff on a 750 as opposed to a 510 or a 300 ,.. far less moving parts on a mf compared to gleaner ,. fewer than 20 grease points on a massey m,,. gleaners have a hundred,,.. but you wont need to be pounding on bearings when they wear out like on a massey ,..
