What is the model number of the head on my combine. It's the old style where the feeder house is part of the header. It has a Love cutting bar with a pitman drive knife. I can't seem to determine what the model number on this head is.

I don"t believe the old-style heads have a model number. For part references, look up the 715 itself.

How are you doing Albert. As far as I know there is no model number on the old grain heads. They are a good head especially if they are equipped with hydraulic reel drive and the robot header control for soybeans. The sickle drive is basically trouble free.

I'm glad to here that the sickle bar is trouble free. My concern was that the action of the pitman was going to shake every part of the machine loose.

IH sold a coupling that would up-grade the old style combines which had the feeder house going with the head, to a unit that would use the new style quick attach heads. I bought one and used the front mounting plate to make a 3pt head mover. The remainder is setting in the machine shed, thought eventually someone could use it.

Hey Keith, I'm doing great. I sent you an e-mail last week on my 403 update. Must not have got it????

The sickle drive is much less trouble than the wobble box on the 810,820 series head. The pittman rod set up runs smooth. The sickle must be timed every time you remove the sickle but it is easy to do . Keep the sickle drive greased and check to make sure the two big bolts in the knife drive bell crank are tight.

Thanks all! This head has a love bar and tiger jaw knife. When in operation the vibration is significant. I cut 25 acres of rye with it without incident, it seemed the vibration was extreme. It reminds me of my Moline tractors; when you get started you can't believe they'll last a day - but they just keep going.

I'm not sure on the Love bar, but the old Hart-Carters had rubber bushings in the stabilizer that had to be replaced periodically. They'd crack and the vibration would start getting worse.

Those old heads run very smooth. The vibration must be coming from the love bar.

Is the vibration occurring when you are cutting the rye? I've never cut rye but in oats you have to lock the Love bar up like it was rigid before cutting in grasses. In soybeans I lower it so it can float. My Love bar on my E Gleaner is very smooth.

I didn't lock it in the up position and I suspect you are correct, I should have. I had to cut quite high to avoid the ragweed. Later (when I was done) I thought that the problem could be the angle - and that's probably the case. Thanks
