i'm replacing the cylinder bars in my gleaner combine. not AC parts, but instead i found a set of new auscherman (sp?) bars at a farm sale. I thought bars were usually packaged in matched pairs to be installed on opposite sides of the cylinder. but these are just two sets of four bars wired together from factory. my question is how do i make sure the cylinder is balanced? i see there are some weights bolted on the inside of the cylinder. (i assume for balance) are these weights set up for the original bars and, in that case, not be appropriate for the new bars? should i leave them in or take them out? this is the first time ive ever change cylinder bars. any advice would be appreciated. thanks

Find someone with a pound , oz scale,the ones like in a meat shop. See if they will let you weigh the bars, put close weights together in sets of 2 insall them opposite of each other. When all are in take drive belt or chain off cylinder, spin, and if it doesn't rock back and forth when it stops it's close to balanced.If it rocks you will have to put weight on the light bar/s, extra washers usually work.

did what you said. got the cylinder so it didnt rock when it stopped. i would spin it and it would stop without rocking. it stopped in many different positions without rocking so it must be about right. put everything back together and started it up,no noticable vibration. thanks for the advice.
