Idler Pulley Repair Saves Farmers $640
Dale Denton, Cowden, Ill., is a retired machinist with a well-equipped country shop. He has a reputation for being able to rebuild expensive farm equipment parts for a lot less than new. One of his most cost-effective repairs is the way he rebuilds the main idler pulley on older New Holland combines. New pulleys cost about $700 but he rebuilds the old ones for only about $60.
Denton bores out the old pulley and puts in a new sleeve so he can install the original size bearing.
