Postby jdeere86 » Wed May 06, 2015 7:14 pm

Hey all,

setting up hopper on the 140 and am having a little trouble figuring out where the little rod goes - have tried searching for photos , don't come up with much - seeing if anyone has this set up and could shine some light on it
thank you

It looks like the hopper mount (the part that bolts on the front set of bolts) is on upside down.

Al's picture also shows you where the small rod is connected.

Here is a "cheat sheet" I made a few years ago. You may have to play with number of links but this should get you started.

nice info sheet right there - was unaware that the chain had to be set up depending upon sprocket sizes

the #32 chain says it can disassembled by flexing the chain and sliding the link out - any tricks for doing this - have tried prying apart with flat head and chisel no luck yet

Basically you bend the chain to approximately 90 degrees, and hit the link with a hammer. You have to support the round part and drive out the flat. If you look you will see the slot. It does not just slide out, especially when new.

I use one of these and a ball peen hammer, but you can do it without it:

It supports the chain while you drive it apart and together. You will have to put it together after putting it around the sprockets. Search for IHC chain breaker.

I think you have some flexibility there as long as the chain stays on the sprockets. I've seen people set it up differently as far as the chain tightener, etc.
