A few weeks ago I acquired a Case 5100 grain drill, 21x7 with 20 inch wheels. Very similar overall to the Case IH 510. It needed some minor repairs but basically is rust free and complete. I now have everything set the way I want but encountered a problem with the two feed control levers. They are free to move to a degree but will not move beyond the range of 4 to 20 or thereabouts. It sounds to me like something in the grain cups is blocking free movement.

This drill sat a long time in a barn without being used or cleaned out. Is it possible that old seeds and husks are jammed up inside the cups? Would it help to blast the cups with compressed air or stick a powerful shop vac hose into each cup?

Thanks in advance.

Bill in Luray

Blow each one clean and add some penetrating oil to each one to loosen them up.

In addition to what "case" said, turn the feed shafts with a crescent wrench to loosen 'em up and dump debris, then lube 'em some more, and repeat.

Before and after storage, we always sprayed 'em with diesel fuel mixed with some engine oil for added rustproofing and lube.

If the feed tube are rubber, don't overdo it and get it on the hoses and make 'em swell up.

I soak em in pb blaster and work the shaft back and forth and turn it and get it free . When done drilling I blow the drill out I soak the cups and feed mechanism in pb or liquid wrench so it stays free

I broke the caster wheel off my John Deere drill and it stayed up on that dry farm for about ten years when I finally found a caster wheel I?d left seed in it and the lids open so the horses could Eat the oats in the seed boxes they ate part of the seed but the rest soaked up rain and snow and went rotten . I got the drill home and cleaned the seed out then started soaking them with pb blaster used about 5 cans but the seed shafts came free . Finally some drills came to the salvage yard with good press wheels and I was able to fix the drill up and now I use it every year

This was the day the caster wheel broke .

Love the Deere tractor -- 4020? I do a lot of my farming with a '61 3010, see picture. Terrific tractor. I wouldn't mind having a 4020 though. Real brutes.

Buying lots of PB Blaster tomorrow. Luckily the hoarders haven't gone after that.

"Buying lots of PB Blaster tomorrow"


Diesel fuel will do the same thing for a LOT less $$$.

If you feel like spending money, get a one-gallon pump-up garden sprayer to use to apply the diesel fuel.

Put a pint in it, pump it up, and you can use the wand and nozzle to precision-apply the diesel fuel just where it's needed.

Yes, sounds like the seed delivery wheels are a bit seized. Good advice from the others. Also, there is an adjustment to calibrate the adjustment levers so when at zero, delivery wheels are completely in their housing. See your op. manual for adjustment calibration procedure.

Thanks for all comments and suggestions. I've cleaned and lubed everything so the adjustment levers move fairly easily. The problem remains that neither lever will go all the way to one or zero and won't go upwards of 10 or so. The problem is not lubing or junk in the way. Looking underneath, I see that the adjustment mechanism is clanking metal on metal. That is, metal parts are restraining the adjustment. I will look into the manual about this. Note: cranking the main shafts with a wrench was not hard but did not change the situation. I need to get both sides down to a 2-3 setting. The left makes it but the right jams solid at 4.

Additional note: I think it's odd that both adjustment levers jam in almost the same low and high positions. As far as I can tell, the levers are completely independent from each other, they control two different sets of seed cups. Does this suggest that someone may have played around with the adjuster mechanism? The grass seed gears (machine does not have a grass seed box) are hitting a bracket on both sides and I doubt that's by design.
