So yesterday afternoon, we started in on corn with the 105. And after 1 load combined, the chaffer started to go.

I had purchased one last year used, and less than perfect. And today it went in... so much for having everything ready.

I'd still like to find a new one... and called a few aftermarket places. No one makes one, and nobody seemed very interested in coming up with a close fit.

My chaffer is 48 in wide, and could be either 48 or 60 in long, as there is a 1 foot bolt on section on the back.

Anybody know of anything that would fit???? I'm told a Gleaner F is the same width but shorter.

Anybody have experience with an airfoil?

All I do is corn... could I just replace the chaffer with a screen that would keep the cobs and husks out???


I will admit, this is kind of a game to keep the old girl going. But she sure runs good and is simple to fix- although the chaffer thing is getting frustrating. A 9500 or something would be a nice replacement.

But here's the rub... my neighbor does our beans for us, and does a good job. He traded his 9500 for a 9550 this spring, and it's a nice machine. But newer stuff certainly isn't trouble free. We finished the beans today, and discovered, when done, something was shooting sparks somewhere, as there were burning embers in various places!!! Newer doesn't mean NO headaches, and sometimes more. I appreciated the simplicity of the 105 today!!!

Gleaner Model F is a 40 inch wide machine. Check on an M....might be 50 tho. I"m in Colorado now, otherwise would measure my M2, but they are one walker wider than the F.

Have both chaffer and shoe sieve airfoils, but not in a JD105. Mine are in a IH1480 with squirrel cage fan upgrade. Airfoils require a lot of air to work properly, so wouldn't consider unless the 105 has a great deal of air generating capacity; eg, an airfoil wouldn't work well in an IH915. Pretty much set the fan on maximum and adjust how it goes thru both sieves. Only need to reduce the fan if grain has a very poor test weight(too light weight). Personally probably wouldn't spend the money buying airfoils for a JD105 unless in was in great shape and I didn't want to harvest with anything else.

If your sieve went bad that fast you have other problems and a new one will deteriorate quickly too. Did you replace the rubber bushings? They can look good and still be bad.

The sieve was an old one, and the bushings were new not long ago, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to do it again.

One thing I've used to prolong the life of a poor sieve is to put a dab of caulk on each rod where it goes through the edge and center pieces. This will hold them secure and take up the slop and still allow enough flexability to adjust the sieves. Make sure you use a type that stays flexible.

I don't think you'd be happy with a screen in corn. A chaffer has the fingers sticking up that walk the grain to the rear. In corn you might have too much volume for a flat screen. Jim

Another thing. If one of the pitman arms has a loose bearing it will cause the cleaning shoe to twist just a tweak every time it goes fore-and-aft. After awhile something in the cleaning shoe will break. It doesn't take much. This is true with any combine. Jim

Try calling Bowie equipment in Tipton Iowa he has several parts machines and buildings full of parts for older Deere tractors and combines. I have bought parts for my 95 there as well.
