I am wanting to update some things on my John Deere 7200 planter and looking for some salvage yards to buy some parts. Any good spots? Thanks.

Maybe Colfax, IA will have 7200 parts. I've seen 7200 planters when I have driven through before. Bowie Implement in Tipton, IA might also, they have alot of 7000 planters for parts. Might be worth the phone call.

There is one in Waterloo on 218 south I believe it's called Keltsmans salvage, not sure on the spelling. Someone else might.....

Actually is Shawn Coogly that has the planters NEXT to Colfax Salvage. But Colfax Salvage always knows how to find him. I've bought Dawn and Kinze pieces from him.

I will check these leads out. I am wanting to get some parts off of a 7200 or a 1770 so I can have the autophasing lift cylinders on my 7200. The kit is no longer available from Deere and I have to piece the kit together. New parts total just under $11,000. It is going to take about $30,000 to trade to a newer 1770 that would already have the rephase kit on it from the factory. I have gotten my 7200 planter set-up how I like it (other than not having central fill) with the Dawn row cleaners, 3 bu boxes, and Precision Planting row units.

What all parts does it take to make one auto rephase? Have a friend who was interested in doing this but local Deere dealer was no help.

I spent part of the day on JDParts online and think I have all that is needed. The cylinder lift arms that the tire and lift cylinder hook to, nned to be changed out. One is slotted, where the cylinder attatches and the other 7 arms are a different part number than the slotted arm and the 7200 arms. The lift cylinders are reused. You have various hyd hoses and fittings that may be cheaper if sourced out. The expensive parts are:
manifold $1960
pressure relief valve $1205
(8) rephasing valves @$115 ea $915
slotted lift arm $660
(7) regular lift arm @ 540 ea $3785
_______
$8525

The other $2280 amount to hoses and fittings. Alot of these hoses are to be fabricated, according to parts listing. The website gives fitting type and length for most of the hoses.

among us on the board. I have a 7200 ME II. My lift rams work fine, kinda loose and need some new bushings, but I don't even know if they are phasing. Everything goes up like it should. Do I need to do this too. I do occasionally have an issue if left in up position, it will leak down on one side, (8RN) and is kind of a booger to get leveled out. Have to bleed the crap out of it. I just figured I needed to kit the rams with seals to stop the leaking.

Do I not have a phasing planter and do I need one?

Edit to add. Shoot me an email, we can cuss and discuss this offline, the thread is falling down the page a piece.

cowboycorn, I sent you an email, but will give quick reply. From what I can tell, the front fold flex planters, 12, 16 and 24 rows were the only ones that needed the rephasing kit. The 24 row front fold came with this from the factory. In your case, you may need to rebuild the lift cylinders. We have found that by putting the safety blocks on the cylinders at night, the neighbors planter will stay phased longer. I always make sure my planter is lowered at night, folded or unfolded. It seems if the planter is allowed to settle, this is when the cylinders get out of phase.

That's real slick of Deere to pull that kit. I had a 1770 16/30 that was never right from the factory. Deere offered this kit free of charge, but we had to eat the labor to install. It took 2 guys the better part of the morning to get everything switched over. It solved the problem of constant wing droop and worked pretty slick with timers on the remotes of a newer tractor. I figured most, if not all, were switched over when the kit was offered. Good luck tracking down what you need

We changed ours over when deere had the free update. I wouldn't buy the lift arms unless you can find them cheap. Find the two part numbers to get some measurements and change yours. The only difference is the tabs where the cylinder attaches (As said before, one slotted, the rest have the pin hole moved a little bit). The bottom also has two holes instead of one to attach the wheel hub, but if I remember correctly the installation instructions made no mention of which hole to mount the wheel in. Like maybe the two holes where an after thought or a "just in case" thing. We run mono-rib tires on 4 out of 8, which are slightly taller. The planter still re-phases fine.

you might check with Castleman Equipment near Dyersburg, TN. They sell and build to order lots of used JD planters and keep a lot of parts on hand from planters they tear down and re-build.
