I have a JD 216 grain head with automatic head height from my last combine. Got a new IH 1460 combine and was wondering if anyone has made the controls work from the combine to the head. I have a bish plate so that part is not a problem. Just need to know if i can get the header height to work. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!

Depending on what you have for electronics, there are 2 ways to go about getting this to work. I know on our 1440 we had to add a valve and some electric components for it to work. On our 1660, I just took off the John Deere sensors(the dial-a-matic on the right side) and put on a POT in place of it. Then there are 2 wires that need to be switched because it reads from the opposite side of the head compared to the case. I can send you pictures if you like. I've helped out a few guys with the 1660 application.
