  • WTB Dearborn Lift E part
  • I am looking for one each 111792, Hanger, Bearing Right for a Dearborn Tandem Disc Harrow Series E. The one that is currently on the disc is badly bent and needs to be replaced.

  • Carson, it looks like I have one left one and one right one that I would be willing to part with. I bought them at Palmer Fossums auction a few years back. Don't know why they are painted blue but pretty sure they are the ones your looking for. If not I will just take them back. $20.00 for both plus shipping and they are yours....

  • Sorry Tim, all I have is the hangers. Like I said I bought them at an auction thinking I would replace the couple that are pitted on my disc or if I bent one I would have a spare.

  • Many years ago I found a complete set of NOS Dearborn scrapers for these old harrows -still have them, never used. Thanks, I had to ask.

  • Last fall I broke one of my bearing caps on my Dearborn Disc harrow Type E. To fix it I need to find a parts donor or get a new cap cast. I know who can cast one, but quantity made will dictate $$$. One piece, not worth the hassle. If you are willing, maybe we could go in on a parts donor and each get the parts we need. My email is open...

    I am just getting mine back together and am wondering how easily the disc units should turn. I would think they should turn easily by hand if not in contact with the ground.

  • Re: WTB Dearborn Lift E part
  • Yes, the discs should turn easily by hand without dragging. There are Zerk fittings on the bearing caps in order to grease them. Some of the early Ferguson-Sherman and Dearborn Disc Harrows used wood bearings. The Lift Type E doesn't have wood bearings. The problem I've encountered with a lot of these old implements that have grease fittings is that, if not used in many years and left setting in barns and fields, the grease turns to hardened wax. If the grease gun will not pump easy into a Zerk, stop. Use a butane or propane torch to apply heat around it to help melt the old waxy grease. Just a trick I learned enroute to restoring these old implements. Also, be careful with old Zerks -I've broken some off too. In my photos above, you can see another mistake I made but so many others have done as well. That is, to add weight to the top of the discs to get more penetration. The cinder blocks I added were most likely the root cause of my breaking that bearing cap.

    Thanks, that was what I figured. One of the gangs does not turn very easily and I think the others just need greasing.

  • Re: WTB Dearborn Lift E part
  • Yes, try to grease it but if there is any resistance, stop and try to remove the Zerk and clean out old waxy grease. I've busted these Zerks off too so use care. Could try spraying PB BLASTER in Zerk too -that may work to dissolve old crud.

    Do you have any idea what the part number for the bearing caps and the spool might be??

    There are some aftermarket ones out there. I sent you an e-mail on one of them.
