  1. sometimes the small things get u. got a call from older farmer in area the other day. he said his ahhc didnt work. i show up he lowers head and as soon as he lets off button head quits going down. i get meter out to check voltage but first get in cab and try myself no go. start to diagnose and no juice. decide to start at auto switch so get back in cab to check. notice reel was in auto but not head height. i was just up there aqnd tried it. push switch to auto works perfect. all i can say is it **** to get old and overlook the simple stuff i would of caught 40 yrs ago
  2. if no hdr height control are u running bar in middle of travel most of the time? reel could need finger timing set. how fast is reel speed? are a few things i can think of. if was close enough would help u figure out gremlins. find a old ih mechanic in your area
  3. if u hook head up then in auto mode if u push head height button and it works backwards with pigtail remove it. if backwards without pigtail install it. the serial no. break is somewhere around jjc 200000. as far as not feeding are u meaning reel isnt putting beans into auger or auger fingers doesnt feed into throat? both are adjustable to cure your problem as long as finger crankshaft isnt broke or bent really bad. u do have all the fingers in the head? there is a full flighting kit that does away with fingers that works really well if crank is messed up
  4. the last pic. that was posted the linkage pivot point is to high. looks like u used existing holes in header frame? you dont use those holes need to drill new holes 1 3/4 inch down from them. then move linkage to top hole in pivot. i have installed many of those kits over the years. never had to modify anything other than adding the pigtail for older machines. once every thing is set right it will be within correct voltage range
  5. forget about the orings. get two of part no. 368548r1 quad rings to replace them. then when u put the bolt in that holds the tube u are probably going to have to shim behind the tab.u want the tube as straight in the bores as possible
  6. the strap is only a tool that makes sure pickup fingers are set right for the 28 degree travel of cutter bar and pot.
  7. flow control spring for that remote could be weak or broken
  8. find a hy capacity dealer. have them order the origional prestolite solenoid. problem fixed
  9. the tool is a strap with a couple bends and holes for bolting to head and arm. it locates arm at 14 degrees fore or aft. depends if cutter bar is down or locked up. to make sure u have the full travel of cutter bar in sync with pot.
  10. if u could figure out if the sensing arm is 14 degrees fore or aft u could use vise grips to hold it in place when adjusting the feeler pads. its alot easier with the tool. part no. 86985617 i carry one in service truck 75% of ahhc complaints ers fixed in very little time using this tool and 2 bolts. also make sure u unhook the assist spring on right hand end of head on sensing tube before adj.
  11. you need the pigtail wire to make it work on older combines. plus you need the little piece that comes with the kit that positions cutter bar in correct location to set the fingers under the head so they are set the same.
  12. thanks for replies. found the problem when installed years ago they used a scotch lock connecter to tap into the clean grain sensor wire. took panel off side of cab and soon as i seen that knew i had found my problem. them stupid things should be outlawed all they do is cause problems.
  13. have 1660 with ag leader pf 3000 yield monitor. it powers up fine but doesnt read any functions when combineing. like the monitor doesnt think we are combineing. happened when changing fields shut it down traveled a few miles to next field. it powered up fine but just shows 0 in all functions. does anybody know what tells the monitor to start working? only function working is cut height.
  14. if you put much air pressure on lube tube the baffle is definetely bad now dont take much air pressure to mess them up. hope this isnt the case. block lube tube off then put back together see what pressures are then.
  15. take a close look at the spring for friction adjustment. have had them stick to the big washer and sorta wind up when at wide open throttle. then they unwind and move lever. if this makes any sense to you. only way i can describe it.
  16. if you buy lawson products the drawer are cheap and the cabinet is usually free. most of there stuff is excellent quality and cheaper than the local farm stores
  17. take linkage and top nut off. pull up on stem if no resistence is felt then little pin is probably broke. comes out bottom plug
  18. a lot of the new guides tend to be made of a softer material than the old ones. have run into this twice in the last few years. both of them where tw ford engines no IH though. also had one that was running high egt for prolonged period of time that wiped out guides.
  19. friend wants to pull his 560 in the 7000 lbs. class. He bought it with turbo on it and it smokes a little. know idea of hp what gear would you guys pull in. im thinking 3rd.
  20. thanks. cant find much on line about it. the ones i find all are diesal powered. have seen where it is a hesston 8100 but not sure
  21. looking at a 8820 self propelled windrower. has a 14 foot auger head and crimper. engine is a slant 6 mopar. just wondering if it would work good in heavy tall grass and alfalfa. and what ballpark value would be decent paint and rubber. sickle drive jack shaft needs replaced it broke where the brg was spinning on shaft and front push bar is bent.
  22. what is the inj. leaking around the seal? just guessing you mean the top dust seal. if so nothing should be leaking there. probably need new inj. sleeve put in head and new copper crush washer. then maybe recheck valve settings
  23. if late model spring 139130c1 spring is used the late model park pawl needs to be installed to. part no. 139141c1. they changed the tooth angle for lighter spring to keep the same holding capacity of park
  24. sounds like a normal day around here.
  25. i must be to old. i hate any manual on the computer or pdf. i like a book in front of me that i can turn the pages on. but then again i cussed micro fiche to
