To get the feederhouse pitch the same as a 2588 what needs done? On our fd70 draper I'm used to being able to tip the guard tips up a good ways but on the 6088 and fd70 when I tip them up it doesn't nearly go that much.

Wonder why that got changed?

casefarmer, are you getting set up for beans? We couldn't get our 2062 tipped up enough last year. Saddle is all the way back and wedge on bottom of header against feeder opening but I'm still pushing dirt with the header in conventional tilled beans. Our 2588 is not a problem. It makes me wonder if they changed something. Hope I can get it solved this year.

Pretty sure you are not supposed to use ether on the new engines.
You should be able to leave the key on for a while to prime, turn the key off, then on again to glow, then start it.

I modified a corn front off a 2588 and put a 6 inch spacer in the bottom plus tilted the feeder all the way back on a 7088. If there is a big white height gauge on the FD70, take it off. See 7088 exploding windscreen.
