I dropped the chopper and pulled the shoe out. A few questions.
1. Is this what happens to the separater beater after a lifetime of beating or did something else happen here? I will remove and straighten.
2. There are no shields at end of raddle. Manual shows a couple different designs. According to my serial #22282, should be the latest version. Would it not of had one or might it have been removed? Maybe that is what beat up the beater.
3. On vertical part at top of photo, looks like a wooden slat was holding something on there. What might that of been?
4.This is a corn/soy special and does not have screens over the walkers. Parts manual says they were discontinued. It seems the general thought is to use them. If they really necessary why were they discontinued?

I have seen a beater that was worn out. This one is not, it's beat up! I would get a used one.
The "raddle cob shield" was just a little tin thing that went across the back of the raddle. The walkers had to be slid back to clear it. It's purpose was to keep cobs from being deflected forward by the action of the walkers. Cobs could get thrown into, and get caught by the raddle and dragged back around underneath, plugging the raddle, or worse, destroying wooden slats on the early raddle.
Dad religiously installed that in his late E every year. When I had an earlier E, and a K2, and F2, I never had or used the shield.
Wooden strip was along the top of a canvas curtain. Without curtain material can fly out of the back of the machine over the walkers.
I assume walkers screens being discontinued is like so many other parts for these older machines- no longer supplied.

The bent lip on the drum would wear thin at the bend and the lip come off. The damage on your drum is actual damage, not just wear.

Thanks to all that replied. I will remove beater then decide to either fix or replace. Will also add curtain and forget about raddel shield and screens.

I wonder about that beater condition. What could have passed under the cylinder with out blowing the concave door open and even if it did make it that far back to trash that thing so bad?? Ryan

I know. It had to get thru the cylinder. I just bought it last year so it was a previous owner who certaintly would have known something was up.

Looks like it had a straw chopper with bad knives and plugged tighter than a fiddle string.

Now thats a thought. The knives are pretty well rounded on one side but they were flipped before I got it.
