think of them as a 715 with a little smaller engine C263 vs C301 in gas. Cylinders, concaves, cleaning screens all about the same. Cylinder speed changed by swapping sprokets. Heads originally attached at the front of the cylinder as they had their own feeder houses. 13 and 15 foot were the most common around here. some were equipped with heiniker or hart-carter floating bars..Corn heads 3 row and 4 row newest you could use was a 743, the bane of my existance when it came time to repair. Kits were available to mount a feeder house that fit 715's . That allowed the use of 800 series corn heads and 810 grain heads. Parts may be a problem. There is some interchange with 715's which is why i still have two of them in my salvage collection. Most of them were long ago scrapped out, they weigh about five ton. If they havn't been stored cleaned and inside it is likely the bottom of the bin and the shaker pan under the cylinder will be rusted out in spots. cb

simpler than a 715 and easier to set. ran a 403 hydro from 67 to 82 then traded it for a 715 diesel. gained more hp larger grain tank, easier air adjustment and learned how to replace straw walkers as the 715 was hard on walkers. I had put the fan kit in both of them from Ray Stickle the combine man from Idaho and it made a big difference in the way they cleaned grain. Chances are the concave is needing reprs and st john does that but when there look at the grain pan. a heck of a job they come out the front.
My 403 was a gas hydro with 16ft header and 715 was a diesel hydro with a 17.5 ft header. now run a 1440 with the 17.5 ft header

Hagan is right about the grain pan if you actually pull it out. Did that once for a 303, once was enough. My current solution is to use a section of another pan in good shape. Clean and coat old pan with silicone calk , bedliner, contact cement , or whatever you have on hand to make the pieces stick together. place patch on old pan and secure using self drilling self tapping screws.Caulk edges and you're good to go.

make sure the seal at the front of the grainpan is good if you patch it up

I would think it will hard to find parts unless you can get a parts combine to keep her going. I never liked the idea of changing heads with a feeder house attached. I've got an early 715 gas C&S special and have a little trouble finding a few things. Good luck
