Thats an old timer with 700 series heads. That 744 head is a nightmare to work on.

The 715's used the 301 gas engine.I have a nice one in a 1975 715
IH parts combine and its going to jump in to a 1961 Farmall 460
tractor someday.

We had a 403 IH combine that had the 263.

Great little combines. I owned several over the years, along with a couple of 403's. Some things to check-They tend to rust out along the cross augers on the bottom of the machine, along with the bottom underneath the tank auger. Check the grain pan for holes. Inspect the sprockets-the big sprocket up high on the side is a good indicator of wear and easiest to see. Sometimes hard to shift after sitting-drill holes and install grease zerks in the tube the rods ride in across the front of the machine. Take the top access panel off and check the straw walkers. Look up inside the back of the machine and check to see if the bottom of the walkers have rusted out. Make sure the chaffer is not missing pieces. Make sure the chopper knives are not worn out, or it will plug up and make you want to set fire to it after the whole back end fills with fodder.
If you can find a good 800 series corn head and platform, you can install a new style quick tach feeder house on the older machines. Most junkyards have one or two sitting around. It should bolt right up.
For comparison, they were a closer match to a Deere 6600 than the 4400. I used to watch the neighbor run a 715 and a 6600 side by side-the 715 always outran the 6600.
