570r no reel speed

Have a “new to me” 570r that came without headers. Hooked up to a honeybee sp30 today and everything works except the reel. So I hooked onto a precision P13 pickup and same result. Aeveeything works except what is fed from the two hydraulic lines on the combine. When I go to adjust the reel speed it displays “unable to adjust reel, front attachment does not support hydraulic adjustments”. Has anyone run into this issue before?

Probably an issue with the multi point coupler. I think a wire or two will need jumped so the combine realizes it is hooked to a header that needs a reel powered.

And Check below the unloading auger. There is a sensor with linkage that is connected to a hyd valve. Make sure it’s connected. For future reference there is a brass bushing on the linkage bolt on the valve. It should be replaced every few yrs

Did both headers that you bought have the 500 series multipoint connectors on them? As seedcleaner suggests you have to have an input from the reel speed sensor. You may have to change the sensor to get the right voltage range for a Lexion if the header came from a different brand. Lex runs a 5 volt system IIRC and others are different. I mounted a HB header on a 480 and had to add the right speed sensor and then get the wiring on the header to the multiport to match up with the combine side. It could be other problems like a reel speed module or in the electric over hydraulic flow control system. I have seen those but check your header wiring first.

I had this exact problem on my new to me 570r last fall. We purchased a Macdon D50 that came off a JD. So I bought a used lexion adaptor and swapped it over. Never tried reel speed until it was time to harvest. With the machine running and someone in the cab, we unhooked the linkage on the left hand side and manually moved it to make sure the reels speed up and slowed down like it was supposed to. I ended up unhooking and hooking the connection from combine to header a few times with the key on and engine running (machine not engaged) and it ended up starting to work and worked perfect all year. Not sure if it was fluke or if the unhooking and hooking up made it realize there was a header on it. Lexion dealer said I needed wiring and a new reel speed sensor as my header came off a JD, but that was not the case for us.

YOu don't need a reel speed sensor---many Lexions running conversions w/o. WHat you DO need is the "reel drive loop" on the header multilink. THis is a connection that loops a 12V signal back into another pin to tell the combine to enable reel drive. XB-9 is the 12V source. XC-5 is the reel enable pin. They have to be connected for the reel to turn. I'm attaching a print which may help....try testing continuity between the pins on the head.

Did you convert both of your heads to Lexion? If so, you probably need to connect a couple little pins together somewhere by the multilink. If these heads previously worked on a Lexion, I'd check your combine wiring.
