Great Way To Update Older IH Axial Flow CombinesThe rotor and concave for an International Axial Flow 1660 combine can be installed with no modification in an older model IH 1460 Axial Flow, according to Gary Harrell, Wayne City, Ill., who made the discovery when his 1460 wore out internally and he had to make a change.
"It's an easy and inexpensive way to get the increased capacity and performance of a 1660. For only about $2,500 I got a combine that's new inside and has
much more capacity. After installing the new rotor and concave, I was able to switch from a 6 to an 8-row head," Harrell told FARM SHOW.
His 1460 was one of the first Axial Flow combines built more than 10 years ago. When International came out with the newer 1660's, they extended the concave and increased the perforations in the cage to boost capacity. By carefully measuring his machine against the newer parts, Harrell determined they would fit. They did, and with no modification of his machine except that he speeded up the clean grain elevator to handle the in-creased capacity.
