    new parts for old combines???...

    wondering were I might source a new knife for an old new holland 140 combine?? it is a 11.5 foot knife, or even a 12 foot that could be cut. The knife has a ball joint type end on it. The two knives with it have broke and been welded several times, but they seem to be increasingly fond of breaking at the rivet holes.

    Tried local new holland dealer but no joy, would there be any newer combine that might share a similar knife or anything??

    TIA

    If I remember right the New Holland 140 was built by Laverda. Maybe look in their parts bin.

    140 is definitely not a Laverda
    It was originally sold as Claeys or a Bamford Landlord

    When you buy an old knife if you get round to a complete re section
    do it from the other end if that is possible
    oh and do make sure you put the sections on the right way round if you do
    (voice of experience:cry

    If it is breaking at the rivet holes are you using the right size rivets and are you getting them tight enough
    The other reason for breaking apart from old age is bad bearings in the drive causing chatter

    The knife is breaking because it's too tight , you should be able to get it extracted by hand , check all the fingers are lined up correctly .

    A knife doesn't have to be tight to cut well it has to lie flat on the fingers .
