Swishman I believe the bobcat was invented for farmers to clean out their cow sheds with them been housed

I could be wrong there

Paul,

I thought they were invented to clean out the bottom of ships holds after bulk goods had been unloaded.

may be time for some Googling to try and find out the full story

Ok time for a update,

Parts arrived and we reset the injector pressures as we had fiddled with them
Replaced and rechecked the vanes on the end of the injector pump and the assembly of the pump

Still has the same problem, it pumps but wont make pressure, at a guess it might make 1500 PSI

So we left that in the shed and used the 587 PTO job
I'm the very first to admit I know nothing about headers and thid was my first foray into grain harvesting

Well the sample was crap and full of chaff
So mucked about, and mucked about some more and some more and more and frig assed about for a bit ans finally got a sample that wasnt great but was better

By this stage the paddock had got a bad case of thistels and this took even more adjustments

In the end we pulled out a fare few fingers and opened the gap up to about 3/4 "
This allowed the thistles to slide in and get cut off

Also pulled the pipe the rolls the crop over off, made a skirt out of a bulka bag for the rear to stop the crop getting blown off the walkers in strong wind

It was a fare muck about but 6 weeks and 1 day later we was done and returned the header to the yard

I still dont know bugger all about headers but I do know a lot more now
I am still unsure why we couldn't get a real clean sample but it will do
I was told that oats are never clean anyway, so who knows maybe it is as clean as oats get



Heading back to the house yesterday after the last grain was off

Paul

Oh and I do have a theory about the injector pump
I reckon one or both the plungers that run on the cam is sticking ever so slightly as these were the reason it never pumped at all to begin with
They were all gumbed up with stale diesel that smelled like turps and wouldn't even move even with force from our hands and had to be carefully tapped out

So when we get a moment we will pull the pump again and wash it out with even more brake cleaner and try again

I used to set the blower fairly high,if it blew grain out I would adjust it back.That was a Canadian MF 510 20 ft open front.
One time I got a message back from the grain silo via the truck driver to"tell whoever is driving the header that he is producing the cleanest sample coming into the silo",made me feel good.
