First the pictures you see on web site need to be updated. I have found an easier way and it even makes for better transition into rear feed with feeder at very low position. Might be with your row head that feeder gets carried higher thus more favorable feed angle between chains. My kit includes about everything you need except for tail end of front feed which I suggest you replace with factory replacement out of R65-75. I suggest you replace this with R65-75 floor for it is 1_4" thick and has more favorable seal location. I can provide this floor also but I prefer you support your dealer and let him know what you are up to. Kit for your combine with three strand chain sells for $425. It comes with fillers panels for between poly skids, front 18" of rear feed floor, and a bunch of odds and ends. Kits for four strand systems don't need the filler panels for between poly skids so it sells for $250. 18" replacement floor w_o hump is 1_4" thick hot rolled flat iron. Now here's the kicker. I just realized last winter (thanks to a visit to Australia and some very good conversation with dealers and farmers) that Gleaner lengthened tail end of front feed in '93 by 2". So far I find all '92 and prior machines have shorter floor. All '93s I have measured are longer. The thing about this is the longer the floor is the more it directs straw toward center of rear feed tension drum with feeder at low position. If you measure your '93 and find it to measure 11" from strip that holds seal on to channel iron support you would have long floor. Newest floor plans have shortening tail end of front floor by 3" (which is 1" shorter than '92 and prior machines) and then tilting it down 1_2" from currant location. With these new plans the transition is great and I have omitted tilting front of rear floor. I still prefer replacing front of rear floor with a section without hump but have a couple ready to go for next year with hump still in. You might read between the lines on an option for you with your allready installed 1_4" rear floor!!! Drop me an email and I'll forward you some pictures of shortened floor. I'll try get latest info on website soon.
