Setting up MacDon head in the Cebis?

So I got my combine adaptor installed on my 760 with the 25ft D-65 head, I wondering what is the correct option to set it up in the Cebis? I tried a few different options, and i can't figure out how to make the Macdon tilt cylinder move. What controls move that cylinder? Also wondering what feeder house speed I want to run that at? I have a variable speed one on this machine. Im guessing that changing feederhouse speed may change the speed of the cutterbar. Draper speed adjustment, where is that at too? Sorry for the stupid questions this is the first one that my dealer has set up in the area, so we are trying to get it figured out.

MacDon marked page 113 and 114, note 46 very important.

When wired and switched on fore/aft reel control does header tilt.

Run feeder top speed, then check knife speed, was this header on Claas before?

There is a knob on the adapter, just set to the highest speed.

I have all of the Lexion stuff on my adaptor, I ordered it new for the Lexion. The head I have is a D65 that I have been running on a M155 windrower for some other crops. I am setting it up on the combine to direct cut some Spinach seed this season. In the header section of the Cebis, do I set it up as a non-Claas platform head? Currently when I move the reel switch i can move it both up and down and fore and aft. So to run the tilt can you set it up on the hot key or something like that so you sill have full control of the reel. Also wondering if the sensor on the springs that senses ground pressure, does that do the sensing for the auto contour?

Hot key has no effect on hydro hand function.
A separate wire and switch, likely part of those wiring harnesses, is used.
Off switch would be normal reel fore/aft, on switch switch function to header tilt.

Yes, non Claas head.

No, auto contour is not employed standard nor optional on that setup.
Unless...does the adapter have sensors at the bottom on each spring pivot mount?

Highly unlikely to have the dual sensors if he ordered it new from MacDon. To clarify...the OEM sensor currently on the float optimizer works with Claas' AutoContour system to provide height only. Lateral tilt will need to be centered and locked out. If you want lateral tilt to work on that head, you need to add Headsight's MacDon Lateral Tilt kit (sensors on the bottom of each spring pivot). Note: I work for Headsight.

You don't have to lock lateral out, I don't even think you can, just center it and not use it. if you do it cancels auto header height control, something I've always thought was dumb.

Thanks Don....bad wording on my part. "Manually centered as needed" would have been better.

Ok I see, that will work good for me then. I have a non swiveling feeder house on that machine.

Just the one float optimizer senses header float then.
