I just bought a nice looking gleaner c on purple wave it's been shedded and used every year they just cut Milo with it! It looks cheery but I don't know a lot about them except they are easy to work on! Dad had a Gleaner k2 and I've ran 3300 and 4400 and jd 45 but never been around a 60's vintage gleaner. I bought some manuals from jensales but id like to know all I can any response I thank you for and I'll post pic this weekend when we go get it!

It should have a 262 cubic inch Allis Chalmers engine, the same as used on a D-19. It's a 7 main brg ,and in my opinon very good motor, I know one thing it's got plenty of power for that application. A very easy combine to adjust every morning, except it has a cheap raddle chain in it, maybe you will get lucky, and it been upgraded to the one that was made or sold thru Manchester Kansas. The factory raddle chain has to be checked daily.

The raddle chain is behind,underneath, the cylinder and drags the straw and chaff to the strawalkers,that's where Gleaner says a lot of the seperation takes place. Now there's got be a curtain in there also, if that's out you have to replace it or whatever.Take out the square inspection tins, about where that said chain would be, and if you can lift it up over two inches its getting loose, then u have to raise the header, crawl underneath, put your saftey stop on the lift cylinder [right side as i remember]and and remove a little rectangle door and you can see the front of the raddle chain, and also the two bolts there that you tighten the raddle chain with, then crawl out and check it again,. But have the previous owner explain or show it to you. That was the only thing that was cheap or i thought was stupid about it.

The rattle chain is what carries the material from the cylinder to the sieve and straw walkers. A c2 was dadsbig combine back in the day, a simple yet very capable machine. Lots of grease zerks so you better get a manual and look it over. I bought a g when I was in high school, still own it, but she is pretty well worn out, I haven?t harvested a grain crop in 10 or 12 years now, sure miss it.

yeah, you can buy parts but maybe not Gleaner,but there are short lines companys all over, but i wanted to ask you what kind of crops are u going to harvest with it?Are you familiar with the closed concave on the Gleaner,it's not a open concave like the Deere with holes in it for the grain to fall thru, as soon as its threshed,if your going to thresh beans you better get your self some differant concaves,If you get the original owners manual, that will be the best book you can get for the machine,The first concave is on the trap door, all the rest are behind it, but the first one is the most important for threshing,if it's got the old U bars, like a small channel iron, and you want to thresh beans threw them as far as you can! Talk to you more later.

Ok... Well ya beans would be the main crop I would cut with it. Im not familiar with it at all so this is an education for me. So I'll have to get different concaves I'm assuming?

Yea but their a piece of cake to put in, see if u can get half moon concaves, to bolt down on the concave floor, like i said before the first one goes on the front of the rock trap door, what ever the book says how many u need, put in and go from there,For beans thats the real deal, the easy threshing crop like oats, barley, rye, and Millet, anything will work for that, but you need half moons for beans. When u get it home tell me what it's got for concaves , we can talk some more.
