1066 Black Stripe

Case Ih 1063 Corn Head

4 posts in this topic

We have a Case Ih 1063 corn head and I would like to slow down the head. Right now it has a 35 tooth drive sprocket and a 24 tooth driven sprocket. The owners manual says to buy a 30 or a 26 tooth sprocket for the driver to slow it down. My question is can I flip the sprockets, put the 35 tooth as the driven and the 24 as the driver, or will this make it run too slow.

Thanks for the help

My 1063 had a speed change sprocket bolted to the right side.

Can,t remember if it was to slow down or speed it up.

The bigger the driver sprocket to a samller driven sprocket will run your head faster, If you place the smaller sprocket on driver shaft to larger one on driven shaft it will slow it down or buy a smaller sprocket if you want to slow down, Hope this makes sense to you

I think.........again I say I think they can interchange front to back. I have done in on 9XX and 8XX heads. I believe the 1063 has a double drive chain? The ones I have done were single chain and it worked fine. I have tried different combinations of sprocket speeds and found a 1 to 1 ratio the best for saving ears. Faster works better if you are running the head at 5mph plus but the ears will bounce right off the plates and out over the snouts and side shields. If you can live with the normal speed of the head I would try to run the 24 on the driver and 26 on the driven. Please check your dealer before you do this and get it together and find I told you wrong :D Might as well change the chain if it has any age on it while your doing this. No sense in putting a new link on a stretched chain and having problems.

And your question about running too slow with the 24/35 combo. A 1440 in high yielding corn no. Anything bigger yes for sure.
