I understand about the deal with MacDon expiring. But the 3162 header was sold for several years as the New Holland 880CF header before Case ever sold the 3162. So it strikes me odd that the header wasn't ready. Maybe the NH customers never used it, favoring the honeybee.

I bought a 3162 2 years ago and had the same problem with the flex and sickle drive. There is some recall campaigns for the earlier models. Bigger gearboxes heavier knuckles and all the old flex linkage gets replaced with newer design. Since that I love it better than the Macdon. Which I also have on my second machine. Ran trouble free the past 1 1/2
