I'm looking at a Hesston PT10 Mower-Conditioner. It is well broken-in but has a new wobble and some other new parts. A piece of cast that allows the pulley to attach to the sickle bar via a threaded bolt is broken. The piece of cast threads in where the counter weight attaches. The owner believes that the whole pulley needs to be replaced-- he thought it would be about$1000 to get new parts. That obviously wouldn't be worth it but anyone here have used parts for this machine? He thought that maybe the bolt he used to attach the wobble was not tight enough which caused the piece to break. He's looking for $350 for the machine but I'm thinking $300. It has decent tires and a cylinder on it. Worth a try?

If it was me,I'd probably bring it home for that,but only because I could rob the tires and wheels and a few reel parts off and still get my money back at the crusher. I saw a 1091 sell at a local farm auction about three weeks ago for $700. I'm on my second Hesston,I like them,but even if you put $1000 in that one,you'd have a $500 machine.
A friend of mine used to be a Hesston dealer back when those PT 10s came out,a neighbor bought one from him. I remember there being a problem with that pulley or hub or something. Gordy had to come out and put a few new belts on that one until he got time to install the update kit that had to be installed on the early ones.
So,yea,I'd go with a Hesston,but I don't think I'd put any time or money in to fixing an old PT10.

rr summed it up well, and I am just elaborating. We were Hesston and Case dealers. And sold many PT10s and 7s painted Case colors or Hesston colors. There were some issues with the pully/ecentric drive, and bellcrank(wobble as you call it) All the bolts in the bellcrank were 2" long, 1/2" taperhead wheel studs, which threaded into the cutter bar head, counter weight, and pitman head ball. Then a taperhead wheel nut was tightened on the other side of the bellcrank assy. to tighten down that side. I often saw farmer repairs with common bolts and nuts and the tapered holes in the bellcrank were ruined. I have also seen the situation where the crank pully came loose on the tapered stub of the conditioner roll and ruined both. Another issue that was far more prevelent was the roll clearance stops. one roll moved up and down as crop volume changed. over time the clearance stop pads would wear allowing the rolls to contact each other, with spring pressure from the movable conditioner roll tensioner. Since the rolls had spiral welded flutes on them, excessive contact would cause the fluts to crack and break off the rolls. It was a simple adjustment to do, but farmers rarely took time to check, until it was to late.
At $300 you shouldn't get hurt though.fro salvage and scrap.

I had a weight repaired.Machine shop machined a notch into the weight, press fitted a piece of flat steel, pressed two pins through the weight and flatbar then drilled and tapped the mounting bolt holes, if it's well worn it will nickle and dime you to death, mine did so I replaced it with a 488NH

Hey Finn, if you get it and decide to scrap, let me know, I could use the gear box.
