CAUTION
SAFETY FIRST
REFER TO SECTION 1 AND REVIEW ALL
SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS.
BE ALERT
Application
The Morris 7000 Series Third Tank applies a wide range
of seed and granular fertilizer products.
Tractor
Tires
•
Proper ballast and tire pressure are required when
pulling heavy implements.
•
Consult your tractor operator’s manual and follow
all recommended procedures.
Hydraulics
•
Wipe all hydraulic fittings and couplers with a clean
cloth to avoid contaminating the system.
•
Check that hydraulic reservoir is filled to the proper
level.
Do not permit smoking, sparks or an open
flame where combustible fuels are being
used. Keep the work area well ventilated.
Drawbar
•
Centre and pin in a fixed position for easier hitching
and greater stability.
Do not search for high pressure hydraulic
leaks without hand and face protection. A
tiny, almost invisible leak can penetrate skin,
thereby requiring immediate medical
attention.

September 2002
7000 Third Tank
Operation
Metering System
The 7000 Series Air Cart uses a combination of
metering wheels and spacers shown below. The
metering wheel is individually sized to correspond to
the number of outlets at the connected secondary head
and the spacers make up the space between the wheel
and the body. Some openings may be blanked off
depending on the number of secondary divider heads
used on the seeding tool.
Note: Before putting product into the tanks check
the following:
(a) The slider plates are set correctly for product being
applied.
(b) The Clean-out doors are fully closed and sealed.
(c) The plastic bag covering the fan is removed.
The 7000 Series Air Cart can meter all types of seeds
and fertilizers by simply adjusting the slider plates.
See “Slider Settings” for more details.
Different rates are easily obtained using the selection
of quick change sprockets that attach to either of the
two meter transmissions.
Important
Ensure distribution system is balanced. It
is very important that head outlets only vary
by one . (i.e. use only 7 and 8 together, 8 and
9 together, 9 and 10 together)
Note: The number of outlets on the divider head
must match the metering wheel size.

Secondary Hose Installation
Important
The lengths of the 15/16” diameter hoses are very
important.
For Accurate distribution the secondary hoses have
to be arranged by length symmetrically about the
centre line.
The longest hoses have to be in the centre of the
divider head. These hoses would normally feed the
openers furthest away from the head.
•
Ensure that the secondary hoses 15/16” diameter
do not run higher than 3” above the height of the
flat fan divider head.
•
Allow an extra 3” of hose before cutting secondary
hose for fitting in the seed boot.
•
Always ensure that the secondary hoses are
sufficiently long to accommodate tripping of trips.
•
Avoid sharp bends in any of the hoses.
•
Check for pinch points and clearances when folding
in and out of transport.
No. 10
5-4
Hot water is the only acceptable lubricant for
the installation of the secondary hose.
The supplier advised MORRIS that WD-40 or any
other lubricant (i.e. liquid detergent) will have a
negative effect on the chemical stability of the
hose, resulting in the degradation and failure of
the hose due to Environmental Stress Cracking.
Important
Distribution uniformity will be adversely
affected if hoses are incorrectly installed.

Operation
Slider Setting
The slider plates come in 4 different sizes. Each slider
plate matches a specific metering wheel.
Note: The slider plates must match the metering
wheel size.
The slider plates have three positions to allow all types
of seeds and fertilizers to be metered.
Important
When adjusting the sliders to the closed position
follow the procedures below:
The slider plate positions are closed, open, and
removed as indicated on diagrams. (See next page)
1) Locate the key-way in the metering wheel.
Rotate shaft until high spot is located, this is
the key-way location. Mark shaft for future
reference.
• Position slider as indicated below and tighten nut
to hold slider tightly in place.
2) Rotate metering shaft until key-way is in
location shown below.
• Position cover plate as indicated below and tighten
wing nuts to hold cover plate in place.
Note: For Oats or Coarse Grains, if it appears
bridging is occurring, remove sliders and
recalibrate.
3) Keep the slider mounting plate flat on the
metering body surface. See diagram A.
If the slider is tipped up when set to the closed
position interference with the metering wheel will
occur.
Note: In the closed position there is a gap of
.070" between the metering wheel and
the top edge of the slider plate.

It has a capacity of 30 cu. ft. which is equivalent
to 1702 lbs of 11-51-0 fertilizer.
(2) 7042 Third Tank fits the 7240 and 7300 Air Carts.
It has a capacity of 40 cu. ft. which is equivalent
to 2257 lbs of 11-51-0 fertilizer.
Note: Before putting product into the tanks check
the following:
(a) The slider plates are set correctly for product
being applied.
(b)The Clean-out doors are fully closed and sealed.
(c) The plastic bag covering the fan is removed.
• Open lid fully on tank.
• Check and remove any debris inside tank.
• Remove clean-out door.
• Check for debris inside metering body.
• Check the slider plates are set correctly.
• Fully close and seal the Clean-out door.
• Ensure the auger screen is in place.
• Always use screen to filter debris when filling.
• Once tank is filled, clean lid seal and ensure
lid seal is positioned correctly.
• Check lid for air leaks with your hands once air
seeder fan is operational. See Section 6
Warning
Do not enter tank unless another person is
present.
• Check metering body for air leaks.
• Remove plastic bag which covers fan.
Note: Even small fertilizer lumps can cause
problems with plugging. All possible
precautions should be taken to prevent
lumpy fertilizer from entering the tank.
Important
Check Metering Wheel keyways in
the event the primary lines plug.
Keyways may shear if the collector becomes
pluged.

Unloading and Cleanout
To empty the Third Tank:
•
Position auger under the tank to be emptied.
•
Start auger. Run auger slow.
•
Loosen front cleanout door on metering body.
•
Regulate flow from the tank by loosening or
tightening front cleanout door as required.
•
Once all material stops flowing, remove cleanout
door completely and brush out remaining material
in the corners.
Danger
Keep all shields in place. Keep hands, feet
and clothing away from auger intake, failure
to do so will result in serious injury or death.
For complete cleanout:
•
Remove the collector bottom and cleanout door.
•
Run fan.
•
Wash the tank interior thoroughly to remove any
chemical traces.
•
Reinstall the collector bottom and cleanout door.

Metering Rate Adjustment
The metering rate adjustment is the same as the Air
Seeder. The rate varies with the speed of the metering
wheels. A new rate is achieved by changing a sprocket
on the Posi-Drive Transmission for the Third Tank.
Refer to the rate charts for desired application rate
and sprocket selection.
Note: The Rate Charts should only be used as a
guide. Even though actual product was
used to determine the chart variation in
product size, density, shape, tire pressure
and wheel sinkage are all factors that
influence the meter rate.
• Loosen metering chain on posi-drive transmission,
by loosening the idler.
• Spin off the wing nut and remove the rate change
sprocket.
• Install the desired rate change sprocket and tighten
the wing nut.
• Tighten the chain by adjusting the idler.
Note: Do not over tighten chain, just take slack
out of chain.

Rate Charts
Use the rate charts located on the 7000 Series Air
Cart.
The charts should only be used as a guide. Specific
rates can be achieved by using the rate check method
as outlined under Rate Calibration.
To determine a seed/fertilizer rate from the chart:
•
Go to the desired rate along the line marked
“Standard” of a specific graph.
•
Go straight up from that point to where that line is
intersected by the graph. This will give the sprocket
size required to give the particular rate chosen.
•
At this intersection go straight across to the
vertical line of the graph. This will give the sprocket
size required to give the particular rate chosen.
•
Change the Quick Change Sprocket and repeat the
rate check to confirm the seed rate.
•
Repeat the above procedure for the other tank.
•
For very low or very high rates, see below.
Note: The rate charts should only be used as a
guide. Variation in seed size, density,
shape, tire pressure and wheel sinkage are
all factors that can influence the seed rate.
Extra Low Rates
Although the charts show a minimum rate of 35 lbs.
per acre for fertilizer and 20 lbs. per acre for seed,
sometimes this is not low enough, especially when
product is being metered from both tanks.
Rates under the values mentioned can be achieved
by replacing the standard 25 tooth sprocket on the
front of the transmission with either a 35 or 40 tooth
sprocket.
The rates obtained when using the 35 and 40 tooth
sprocket are shown on the rate charts beside the
respective size sprocket.
When both tanks are being used to meter the same
product without the Banding Kit, then the 25 tooth
sprocket on each transmission must be changed. Now
both transmissions will have the same size metershaft
sprocket.
If the Banding Kit is installed, then only the 25 tooth
sprocket on the front or rear transmission needs to
be changed.

The same metering chain can be used with these larger
sprockets up to a certain size of quick change
sprocket.
To determine a rate from the chart:
• Go to the desired rate along the line next to the
size of metershaft sprocket used.
• Go straight up from that point to where that line is
intersected by the graph line of the particular
product being metered.
• At this intersection go straight across to the
vertical line of the graph. This will give the sprocket
size required to give the particular rate chosen.

Rate Calibration
The practice of doing a rate calibration is strongly
recommended as it will confirm the actual amounts
of product being put into the ground.
Note: The fan must not be running when a rate
check is performed.
Checking the rate on the 7000 Series Air Cart is very
simple.
The following procedure is one that should be followed
for every rate calibration or change of product.
•
Refer to calibration chart for the correct number of
turns of the crank. (See page 5-18 & 5-19)
•
Remove the wing nuts on the collector bottom.
•
Remove the bottom of the collector and install the
collector extension with the wing nuts.
•
Remove the metering chain from the other
transmissions that are not being checked.
•
Check that the desired rate change sprocket is
installed in the transmission.
•
Turn the crank until material begins to fall through
the collector extension.
•
Slide rate check box onto the collector extension.
•
Turn the crank in direction of the arrow (Counter
Clockwise) the required number of turns.
Note: Incorrect rates will occur if crank is rotated
clockwise.
For Fine Seeds it is recommended to take a
large sample. Typically to take a sample for 1/2
acre or 1 acre.
CRANK
Example:
For 1/2 acre sample for a 25 ft. wide
cultivator with a 7130:
The number of crank turns required for a 1/2 acre
is the number of turns required for 1/10 acre for a
specific machine width x 5.
From the chart on page 5-18
Turns required for 1/10 acre = 21.08
Turns required for 1/2 acre = 21.08 x 5 = 105.4
Rate = lbs/acre
= 1/2 acre sample weight (lbs.) x 2
5-16
September 2002
7000 Third Tank
Operation
Rate Calibration - continued
• Weigh the sample by using tarp straps to hook rate
check box to spring scale.
Note: Remember to subtract the weight of the rate
check box from the total sample weight.
• Check this rate against rate required.
For 1/10 acre sample:
Rate = lbs/acre = Sample Weight (lbs) x 10
• If a different rate is required then increase or
decrease the size of the rate change sprocket.
Increasing the sprocket size will increase the rate
and vice versa.
RATE CHECK BOX
• Replace the bottom of the collector.
Note: Arrow directions on the collector bottom
must point in the same direction as the ones
on the collector body.
Alternative Rate Calibration
An alternate rate calibration method takes into
account wheel sinkage and variations in tire
circumference.
SCALE
See the Monitor Section 6 (Application Rate) in the
7000 Series Air Cart Manual. Instead of turning the
calibration crank, the metering drive clutch is engaged
and the seeder is pulled through a distance that equals
at least 1/10 of an acre.
Note: Fan should not be running for either rate
check method.

Operation
Seeding Fine Seeds (Canola, Mustard, etc.)
When seeding fine seeds such as canola or mustard,
the slow speed transmission has to be engaged to
ensure the low rates required for these products.
Note: Seed must be placed in the front tank.
The slow speed transmission is incorporated in the
FRONT Posi-Drive Transmission.
•
To engage the slow speed, remove the large hairpin
from the front shaft and install through the sleeve
and shaft located at the rear of the transmission.
HAIRPIN LOCATION FOR:
Note: Shaft will have to be rotated to align holes
for pin insertion.
•
To disengage the slow speed, reverse the above
procedure.
•
Rate checks can be performed the same way as
for other seeds.
•
DIRECT
DRIVE
SLOW SPEED
DRIVE
N27864
Usually it is necessary to reduce the fan rpm when
seeding fine seeds. See Fan Speed for specific
fan speeds.
HAIRPIN
Applying Inoculant
When inoculant is applied at the time of seeding, then
once the Air Cart has been filled, the fill-lids should
be left open and the fan run for 5-10 minutes at full
rpm to dry the seed.
Calibration must be done after the seed is dried,
otherwise the calibration will be incorrect.
5-20
Note: If the seed is not dried then the seed will
have a tendency to bridge and not meter into
the air stream.

SYMBOL
Watch for this symbol. It identifies
potential hazards to health or
personal safety. It points out safety
precautions. It means:
ATTENTION - BE ALERT.
Your safety is involved.
General
This section deals with two goals, maximum life and
dependable operation. Adopt a regular maintenance
and lubrication program. Care and sufficient lubrication
is the best insurance against delays.
Safety
•
Always shut off the tractor and remove key before
dismounting.
•
Guard against hydraulic high pressure leaks with
hand and face protection.
•
Never work under the Implement unless it is in the
down position or transport lock pins are in place
and secured with hair pins. Do not depend on the
hydraulic system to support the frame.
•
Always wear safety goggles, breathing apparatus
and gloves when working on seeder filled with
chemical. Follow manufactures recommended
safety procedures when working with chemicals or
treated seeds.
•
6-2
Securely support any machine elements that
must be raised for service work.
Do not feed left over treated seed to livestock,
treated seed is poisonous and may cause harm to
persons or livestock.

Lubrication
Greasing pivot points prevents wear and helps restrict
dirt from entering. However, once dirt does enter a
bearing, it combines with the lubricant and becomes
an abrasive grinding paste, more destructive than grit
alone.
•
Apply new lubricant frequently during operation to
flush out old contaminated lubricant.
•
Use a good grade of lithium based grease.
•
Use a good grade of machine oil.
•
Clean grease fittings and lubricator gun before
applying lubricant.

Air Delivery System
General
The air delivery system of all Air Carts is extremely
important for the proper metering of product to the openers.
The metering system on all pressurized Air Carts is
sensitive to air leaks. Loss of tank air pressure could
affect feed rates, which could become erratic or even
stop.
Caution
Care should be taken when
working near the Air Cart while
the fan is running. Product
blowing out of the system could
cause personal injury.
• Regularly check that all hoses are free from kinks or
blockages throughout the day. To check for blockages
raise seeding tool out of the ground and with the fan
running turn crank a couple of turns. Equal amounts of
material should be deposited under each boot if not
check the following for blockage:
1.Seed openers and secondary hoses.
2.Divider heads by removing access doors.
3.Primary hoses and collectors.
4.Metering wheels for damage to key-way and the flutes
of the wheel.
• Keep fan inlet screen clear and free from debris.
• Place a plastic bag over the fan when the unit is not in
use. This helps prevent moisture from entering the
system.
• Check periodically and at the end of each season for
air leaks at hose connections.
• Check periodically and at the end of each season for
air leaks at the following:
1.Tank Lid Seals.
Note: Extended life can be obtained if the hoses
are rotated 1/4 turn once a year.
2.Metering body shaft seals.
3.Metering body to tank seals.
4.Collector to metering body seals.
5.Fan to plenum.
6.Plenum to collector.
7.Clean-out doors, for leaks and loss of seal memory.
8.Collector door seals.
9.Diverter Valves.
10. Couplers between seeder and cultivator.
11. Access Doors on Divider Heads.
Note: There must not be any air leaks from the tank.
This air leakage causes air turbulence in the
tank which can result in inaccurate metering
rates.
• Once a year check for wear of primary and secondary
hoses.

Tank Lids
The lid seal is probably the area that sees the most
abuse due to the activity associated with filling the
tanks.
With each fill the lid seals should be inspected for
cuts, abrasions, debris in the seal and ensure the seal
is positioned properly on the steel rim around the tank
opening.
Important
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the
Air Cart tank as even the smallest air leak
from the lid will lead to material bridging in
the tank thereby causing misses in the field.
Tank Lid Adjustment
Check Tank Lid tension on all tanks at beginning of
each season and periodically during season for air
leaks. The following checks and adjustments must
be made to prevent air leaks from occurring:
•
Check for any foreign material embedded into seal.
Clean out foreign material from seal surface.
•
Check seal for cuts and abrasions. If seal is cut
or severely worn, then replace seal.
•
Ensure seal is positioned properly on steel rim
around tank opening.
•
Use a 0 - 100 lb. spring scale to check the tank
lid opening force. With the lid closed place one
end of the scale one inch from the end of the
tank lid lever. Pull straight up on the scale and
note the maximum force it takes to open the lid.
The force needed to open the lid must be greater
than 65 lbs. Adjust the lid latch adjusting bolt
as necessary. The lid latch should close with a
snap. This will ensure that the lid is sufficiently
tight and prevent any leaks.
•
These bolts and lock nuts must be tightened
to maintain a friction fit so the lid latch stays
stationary when in open position.
65 LBS
Re-check for leaks. If lids still leak turn down bolt
one or two more turns. Re-check for leaks.
Note: This bolt should be loose enough
to allow lid to float in the slot.
6-8
Note: When Air Cart is not in use, leave lid latches
loose to help maintain resilience of the
seals.
Adjust the lid latch adjusting bolt to obtain
a force greater than 65 lbs to open the lid.

Air Leak Check
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the Air Cart tank.
Any air leaks could cause loss of tank air pressure affecting
feed rates, which could become erratic or stop.
Important
To prevent this from occurring, it is strongly recommended
that a pressure test be conducted prior to seeding time. This
can be performed very easily and simply by completing the
following steps:
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the
Air Cart tank, as even the smallest air leak
will lead to material bridging in the tank,
thereby causing misses in the field.
• Clean fan impeller and adjust tank lids.
• Disconnect the 2 1/2” diameter primary hoses from the
rear of the cultivator at the primary hose coupler(s) by
loosening the four 3/8” bolts.
• Install the blank off plate that is supplied with the Air Cart
at each coupler and retighten the 3/8” bolts. If the blank off
plates are not readily at hand a piece of cardboard can be
used in its place.
• Once the blank off plates have been installed, start the fan
and run at 4,500 rpm.
Note: When Air Cart is not in use leave lid latches
and clean-out doors loose to help maintain
resilience of the seals.
Check the following areas for air leaks:
1. Tank lid seals.
2. Metering body shaft seals.
3. Metering body to tank seals.
4. Collector to metering body seals.
5. Fan to plenum and plenum to collector.
6. Clean-out doors, for leaks and loss of seal memory.
7. Collector door seals.
8. Diverter valves and double shoot mounting plates.
9. Tanks union plate.
10. Tank site glasses.
Air leaks can be detected by spraying a soapy water solution
onto the seal area. If bubbling of soap occurs, the seal has a
leak. Another method is to use your hand to feel for any air
movement around the seal. This method requires a calm day,
as the wind can make it difficult to detect a small leak.
• If any of the above areas leak, remove the parts and replace
the seal. Ensure upon reassembly that the parts are
tightened sufficiently to prevent air leakage.
• Remove the blank off plates before using the Air Cart.
Once the pressure test is complete, check the following areas
for air leaks:
11. Couplers between seeder and cultivator.
12. Access doors on divider heads.

Air Delivery System - continued
Fan
Debris can build up on the fan screen and blades
causing reduced output of the fan. The lack of air
flow even at higher fan speeds will cause material
plugging of the air system.
The build up of material during operation can be by
the following:
1. Fan rpm will increase without increasing oil flow to
orbit motor.
2. Air Cart distribution system plugging from a lack of
air flow (Increasing fan rpm has little or no effect).
Fan Screen
•
Assure fan screen is clear of debris. Check
periodically through the day.
Fan Impeller
The fan blades may become plugged under high
humidity/dusty conditions/high insect counts.
Material on the Fan Blades
Under severe conditions the fan blades should be
inspected daily and cleaned as required.
Under normal conditions the fan should be inspected
and cleaned at least once a season.
•
Care should be taken in cleaning all fan blades
thoroughly to restore the fans peak performance.
•
Ensure that the balance clips located on the fan
blades are not removed, as this will put the fan out
of balance.
Storage
To prevent water entering the air system, cover the
fan intake with a plastic bag, whenever the seeder is
not in use.
Note: Material build up on the fan blades could
cause the fan to be out of balance. The added
vibration of the out of balance impeller will
reduce the life of the fan components.
Note: Be sure to remove fan cover prior to starting
fan. Serious damage could result to the fan.

Clutch
A torque of 80 - 100 ft-lbs is required to slip the clutch.
To check clutch for slippage check the following:
• Check friction plates for corrosion and buff with a
wire wheel if necessary.
• Check clutch coil resistance. If the meter reads
below 2.40 ohms or above 2.90 ohms, then the
clutch has failed and needs to be replaced.
Note: All values taken at room temperature.
Voltage at 12 VDC. As temperature
increases, resistance increases, and current
decreases.
• Check clutch current draw. If the meter reads below
4 amps, there is a problem in the electrical system
leading to the clutch.
• Check clutch air gap at three locations. If it does
not fall between .005” - .023”, then reset using a
.012” feeler gauge and N31040 shim washers.

Hydraulics
Refer to Section 1 regarding hydraulic safety.
•
Inspect hydraulic system for leaks, damaged hoses
and loose fittings.
•
Damaged Hoses and hydraulic tubing can only be
repaired by replacement. DO NOT ATTEMPT
REPAIRS WITH TAPE OR CEMENTS. High
pressure will burst such repairs and cause system
failure and possible injury.
•
Leaking cylinders - install a new seal kit.
•
Fittings - use Teflon seal tape on all NPT hydraulic
joints. Do not use Teflon tape on JIC ends.
•
Hydraulic Hose Connections - when connecting the
hoses to the cylinders, tubing, etc. always use one
wrench to keep the hose from twisting and another
wrench to tighten the union. Excessive twisting will
shorten hose life.
•
Keep fittings and couplers clean.
•
Check the Tractor Manual for proper filter replacement
schedule.
Contact your nearest Dealer for genuine repair parts.
Dealers carry ample stocks and are backed by the
manufacture and regional associations.
Dirt in the hydraulic system could damage
O-rings, causing leakage, pressure loss and
total system failure.
Refer to the Trouble Shooting Section.
Note: Extreme care must be taken to maintain a
clean hydraulic system. Use only new
hydraulic fluid when filling reservoir.
Warning
HIGH-PRESSURE FLUID HAZARD
To prevent serious injury or death:
6-12
•
Relieve pressure on hydraulic system before servicing
or disconnecting hoses.
•
Wear proper hand and eye protection when searching
for leaks. Use wood or cardboard instead of hands.
•
Keep all components in good repair.
