Thanks for the response!! When u look down the cutter bar, it looks to be straight fore and aft. Spring pressure we set at about 1.5-2 on the wrench. The left side was alot heavier so we matched it to the right side. Both grease points took grease on both sides. I guess I dont remember how those 2 pivot points are off hand. Do they just have a pin and clip thru there? We put blocks on the outside and then then just left of center pivot and weight of head did not move it. I used it today, but it is still froze up. Any ideas would be appreciated!!
That's good. The cutter bar should be straight or both outer tips slightly ahead of center. If the wing tips are back of center the header will bind up. If it's back of center usually it means someone caught a rock and bent it. Saying you bought it used made me think of that.
Sounds dumb but check that the wing locks are not binding in any way. They should be able to flop around a little inside their slot.
Does the wing move whatsoever? Or is it just totally locked into rigid?
Measure the length of the vertical rod going to the top linkage. They should be pretty close to the same side to side. Check that both smallish springs are in place.
The way the header works is that the top link (bell crank) transfers wing weight down through the rod to the center section/adapter and float springs.
The "wing balance" cross bolt is kind of like a fine adjust, the length of the vertical rod is like a coarse adjust. So if that vertical rod is too far out of adjustment you'll never be able to get the wing to move, because it's unbalanced.
There is a white line sticker on the frame behind the arm, when the header is locked into rigid i think it should line up the top of the bottom arm. The owners manual has adjusting procedures and if not then look for the dealer assembly manual on the website they go through the procedure.
