I am getting ready to pull a New Holland 975 Combine w/4 row corn head about 10 miles behind a tractor since I can't get it to run. I have a tongue on the back clamped on with u bolts. Biggest problem so far is getting the head up without power which I have it up now with jacking but have to try to make something to keep it up. Anyone ever done this before and what kind of problems can I expect on the road? I'll be pulling it with a 64 HP M602 Minnieapolis Moline tractor which from experince I know I will have to go in a lower gear to keep from going to fast. Thanks in advance.

I have raised hdrs on dead machines before buy hooking a single hyd line with a ball valve at the end with the tractors hyd coupler on it you raise the hdr up turn the ball valve closed and release the pressure from the remove then disconect as long as the valve stays closed it will stay up fine, I have a special hose made for this works great cnt

I never thought of that. I've been jacking on that thing and wondering what to do next since there is nothing to hold it.I will have a tractor there that can do the job as long as I can unhook it and it stays. Do you do both cylinders or is one enough?

You have to use both cylinders.What I do is to take a piece of angle iron.lay it on the cylinder shaft.Let the head rest on those.tie it on with hose clamps.Done several times on "dead" machines.Dont forget to unhook the short driveshafts on the final drives.

If you do not come up with anything else, once you get the head up take a peice of 3 inch angel iron and place over the open portion of the cylinder that raises and lowers the head. Place it between the end of the cylinder and end of the ram that mounts to the head. Take either some wire or some heavy zip ties or both and fasten it into place. This will act as a "saftey ketch" and and prevent the head from falling to the groud.

Hey c leddy not being nosey but was wondering what you gave for that combine, know a guy that has a couple of them with grain heads and choppers that he could get running been about four years since used stored inside said he would take 2000 choice of either one. Never been around one of these combines.

Thanks for the ideas. I like yours since it easy to cut some angle. This has them strong helper springs in the way which maybe can be slid out of the way for a moment when all the pressure is off but they are not helping. Things are alway harder when it about 30 miles from any stores or shop and were about 1 day away from real winter weather. Thanks

I don't mind nosey but tell your friend not to over-expect on his valuable assets. Maybe his is newer than this one. To start with in 1994 My Dad fell to his premature death at 78 years old when getting a sample of grain and missed his step from the top. In 2001 I sold this machine at an auction for about $110.00 and the scrap guy never
bothered to pick it up. I just need to get it moved so the farm can be sold. I think it has a bad luck omen hanging over it but I'm determined to beat the B---ard if I have to scrap it one part at a time.

Thanks. I got header up and it was not pretty. It rained here all night so was out of the question to bring the m602 over so I backed a old Allis WD with a farmhand loader up to it and used that hydralic system and it barely budged the header. After jacking with a 12 ton jack on boths sides I finally got it up and is holding with the Hydralic oil from the wd. I thought the Farm hand loader system would handle it but instead found every joint that could leak. Them 4 row corn heads must be pretty heavy. Used angles on the cylinder just to be sure it stayed up. Now for the tow????

I towed home a M-H 82 backwards on a car dolly about 20 miles with a IH 806 tractor. I disconnected the hydraulic line to the head at the pump and plumbed a hose to the tractor. Lift the lever on the tractor and up went the head, and stayed up for quite a while. I think I had to re-up it only a few times the whole trip.
