Do you know where I can get an operators manual, so I can follow the steps for proper maintenance - gear box, greasing, etc.?

James, can you help me with height adjustment on the left side / gear box side? The rod is all the way in, with no more room for adjustment, and the teeth are still lightly scraping the ground. How can I add some more adjustment room back into the left crank rod. I may need to add some air to the tires, but I don't think that will be enough.

Thank you!

If I'm thinking about your situation correctly add some washers between original washer(key 4) & spring(key 5) should cause LH end of reel teeth
to be higher. Operators manual can be procured from JD or possibly Ebay

"How can I add some more adjustment room back into the left crank rod"

Take a look at the REEL SUSPENSION diagram below.



Note the link assembly (Key 29).

First, I would remove the link assembly.

Note the hanger (Key 21).

You might consider using a piece of flat stock and drill two holes to make a "custom" hanger.

Another alternative would be to use a turn buckle.

Regardless of the hanger you use, I would recommend turning the L.H. crank (Key 3), with the link assembly removed, all the way out to lower the reel as far as possible.

There should be little or no tension on the spring.

Next, use a jack to raise the reel until the rake teeth are just touching the ground.

Install your "custom" hanger.

Turn the L.H. crank in to adjust the reel height.

Hope this helps.

James, thank you so much for that set of instructions. I think the custom hanger is going to do the trick. Question...I almost feel like the left hand delivery rake is overbalanced to the left side. Is that possible, and will that be solved by the custom hanger process that you suggested? I think I am well on my way to getting this rake ready to go. Thank you!

use a turn buckle for the link assembly, or the hanger? Does the link assembly get put back in place, the fix that you described?

"I almost feel like the left hand delivery rake is overbalanced to the left side. Is that possible"

Yes.

Take a look at the illustration below.



Pure speculation on my part, but the GEAR CASE adds extra weight on the left side.

"will that be solved by the custom hanger process that you suggested"

Yes, if the "custom" hanger is shorter in length than the original John Deere link assembly.

Hope this helps.

No, keep it as a spare for the right side.

Is the part circled in red (photo attached) the part that I need to replace with something shorter?

I can't find where the parts in the rectangle box (including Key 21) are on the rake. Thanks.

Yes.

Take a look at our other 640 rake.



Pure speculation on my part, but the "parts in the rectangle box" may have been installed on newer rakes.

James, the picture you posted illustrates it very clearly now. So helpful, the way you annotate and draw the red lines/boxes. I now have all the information I need to get her tuned up. I will post the results here. Thanks a bunch.

Actually according to 640 parts catalog(keys 17-25) should be on older rakes below sn -19500

What pitch position should I use, for starters? right now, it is pitched all the way forward. See photo.
