It's going to be more trouble than it is worth ! You got the slow down sprocket for the cylinder?

Years ago and I mean 40+ years ago the JD mechanic also farmed and what he had for a combine was a orignal version of the 45 and no corn head. He used it with the pickup head to open his fields and I don't remember if he had a pickup real or not. Worked OK for him then but the corn at that time was not like it is today. Todays corn the fodder would overload the machine. And you do realize that corn head requires 40" row spacing. Might get by with good standing corn on a 36" row spacing. And a 205 head that was on a 45 will not fit the 40 as different width feeder housings. Had the 210 head on a 45.

Not sure on the 40 but on the 45 if you have the sprockets for wheat then you have the ones for corn as well, just reverce them. But we ran cylinder 1 step above recomemded speed so as to not be overloading cylinder. But you do need the cylinder filler plates and they are not the same as the 45 that the corn head could be put on. And the 42 is the pull type version of the 40 and the 45 is next larger version of the 40. You should have the 9' platform and the machine would not have tha capacity to put the fodder of 3 rows through, if you could only run 1 or at max 2 rows in low population corn then you MIGHT, just MIGHT be able to do it but then capacity to seperate shelled corn from foder would be a problem. If stalk is standing good but broke off above ear tjen you MIGHT get it to feed into platform.

You do not need filler plates unless you are doing very high moisture corn. I have been doing corn with both a 95 and a 105 and have not used filler plates in 10 years or more. Tom

Without them you get a lot of busted up cobs in grain tank and more busted up cobs with kernals on ground as cylinder just bust up cobes to pass through without the kernels being shelled off. Found that out with the 45 and put the plates in every year after. Only one we ran without filler plates was a MH 35SP with the No. 20 corn head and cylinder was too dammaged to be able to put them in.

You will not get busted up cobs and corn on the ground. Today's seed corn is so different than 10-20 years ago. It is all bred for a combine and will shell off the cob with less than half the effort of the old corn. I know of lots of older combines still in use and no one bothers with the filler plates any more. Tom
